September 4

Compared to two weeks ago, yearling steers and heifers 2.00 to 4.00
higher. Steer calves under 500 lbs 10.00 higher, over 500 lbs fully
steady to 2.00 higher. Heifer calves steady to 4.00 higher, with 500 lbs
offerings trading 8.00 higher. Buyers bid readily from start to finish on
all receipts at the annual BBQ auction. Most yearlings off of summer
pasture and most calves were fresh bawlers without precondition shots.
Around 290 head of slaughter cows and bulls sold in the mix. Of the
feeders 62 percent steers, 37 percent heifers balance on bull calves.
Weights over 600 lbs came in at 74 percent. Next special calf and
yearling auction is Sep 18.
