Market Overview August 15, 2014

419 cattle sold at auction this week at the Fairview Sale Barn. Futures trading on the Mercantile Exchange saw a downward trend and prices at the sale barn were weaker, but not by much. Fat cattle were off $2 to $4, but still brought very good prices. Slaughter cows continue to come to market in large numbers, and sell at record highs although a lot of them this week were thin and lower quality. These make the market look a lot weaker than reality as the better cows were at least steady with a week ago. Click for further info
