Market Overview 7-22-16
427 Cattle sold at Fairview Sale Barn this week as producers braved the heat and came to town. The feeder run continues to be short as per usual in the summer. Fats keep rolling in as cattle feeders bite the bullet on this falling market and sell when they are finished. Some are fed up with the trend and are emptying their lots ahead of a feared lower market even if their product could use more finish. Cows came in higher numbers than anticipated.
241 Fed Cattle continue to lose footing as packers seem to have hit a wall and the market was $2 to $3 lower and sank even lower as the week progressed.
Slaughter Steers and heifers 241 head
Choice 2-4 116.00-119.25
High Yielding 120.75-121.50…the high

106 Cows sold with 90 of them going to slaughter. The market fell well behind last week, but so did the quality as most were thin with very few meatier types in the offering. The market was $2 to $3 lower and more in some places.

65 Feeder Cattle were in the auction and sold very well in spite of the heat. Some representative sales were: 13 head of 300#-400# bull calves brought from $165 to $220. Their heifer mates sold from $160 to $180, The rest of the run was mixed but sold quite well.
There will be no sale next Thursday as we are heavily involved with the Fulton County Fair. The Tuesday slaughter sale is still on for fats, cows and bulls. The next special feeder sale is Thursday August 18 and has no restrictions. All feeders are welcome.

The publisher and my niece, Lori Long, have developed a web page, authorbobfidler.com, to promote my newly published book. Not only does it contain information about the book, it has photos of the subject's home on Great Slave Lake along with his sled dogs.There are also several mood pictures of summer scenes on the tundra of the Northwest Territories of Canada taken by me while canoeing in the very region he trapped.

Alone But Never Lonely
by Bob Fidler
Gus D’Aoust (1897-1990) was a legend, an icon of the Northwest Territories. He was a well-known adventurer, explorer, hunter, and above all, a dedicated and passionate Barren Land trapper. In this inhospitable environment beyond the tree line, he lived his life doing what he loved. His endeavors came near the end of the late, great fur trading era when white trappers stretched across the Tundra for hundreds of miles. This is his story including labors, hardships, philosophy, and other life events and experiences as told by him to the author in 1973.
Bob Fidler, teacher (now retired), enjoyed many years of Canadian canoe tripping throughout Ontario and parts of the Northwest Territories. Born into a family of outdoorsmen with hunting and fishing a way of life, it was so easy and natural for him to become absorbed in the life of the subject.
