Market Overview October 17, 2014

607 head went on the auction block at Fairview Sale Barn this week. Rains kept some of the producers out of the combines and they took time to move cattle and cash in on this blazing market. Everything from baby calves to ton bulls was in demand as buyers were not timid. Fats brought near record prices on a very good kind overall. Cows showed an improvement in quality this week and sold accordingly. A majority of the feeders once again weighed under 600# and were in demand from a host of buyers. Click for further info

Reminders: Next Thursday, October 23, is our monthly feeder calf special sale. Numbers will exceed 1500 head with over 1100 yearlings and as many as 500 fancy calves.
