Decatur Livestock Market
MARKET REPORT
Consignments from February 8, 2016 from 184 sellers were 971 head including: 12 Bulls, 139 Cows, 18 Calves, 98 Longhorns, 203 Stocker Heifers, 253 Stocker Bulls/Steers, 91 Feeder Heifers, 157 Feeder Bulls/Steers. Average price = $835. Last sale = $834. A year ago = $1185. The gains we realized last week could not stand up to the drop in oil prices, Wall Street and cattle futures plus the missile launch by North Korea and locally, last week’s high ratio of weaned calves. Except for 2-4 weight steers, prices took a beating comparable to what happened to Cam Newton in the Super Bowl game. However, average prices on heifers were steady to $5 higher on 3-6 weights and $10 higher on 7 weights. Bred cows and pairs steady to $50 higher on light test. Packers $1-$2 higher. Our 24th annual “Bringing in the Green” Special Sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 9, 2016. Call us today at 940-627-5599 to consign your cattle.
