Market Overview March 27, 2015

Before we get into this week’s market, I offer my yearly point of emphasis---Get your bulls fertility checked now. It’s a management tool that can make a huge difference in your pocketbook. There’s not many things worse in our business than driving to your pasture in August and seeing cows cycling. Also, testing now gives plenty of time to find a replacement before all of the best bulls are sold.

522 Head of cattle sold at Fairview Sale Barn this week. Prices continue to demonstrate a strong demand for all classes of cattle. Fed cattle strength at the Merc boosted their prices. Cow and bull beef, although a bit cheaper this week, is still higher than ever before for this time of year. Combining the strength on the board for fed cattle with the demand for grazing cattle kicking in, and it is not difficult to find plenty of bidders. Click to see overview
