October Sales Schedule
Market Overview October 24, 2014
2203 Head made for a very busy week at Fairview Sale Barn. Prices for everything are in the upper strata and show no signs of weakening. Right now there is absolutely nothing on the horizon hinting at a change. There’s a world of good cheap feed, cow numbers are way down, the world is crying for protein with the good old USA the best source for it, and people are going out to eat good steaks regardless of the cost.
128 Fed Cattle sold steady to a buck higher than a week ago with a scratch top of $167.75. The bulk of the choice steers and heifers brought from $162.00 to $166.75. Lower yielding choice and most selects sold from $156.00 to $162.50. A few stags, heiferettes, and the lower quality sold at $154.00 and down. A few choice dairy breeds brought ftom $136.75 to $142.50.
111 Cows went to slaughter on a steady market. An unusual number of cows were carrying excessive fill this week but overall quality improved over a week ago. Yield is everything in slaughter cows and packers refuse to pay high prices for a belly full of manure. The higher yielding by grade saw premiums bring $137.00 to $147.00. Breakers ranged from $114.50 to $125.00. Boners bracketed from $112.00 to $12675. Lean cows sold from $106.00 to $113.50. Several sold below these figures because of the yield factor while some very poor ones brought much less.
18 Bulls left town on an even keel with the better ones going for $128.50 to $142.50.
1946 Feeder Cattle came to the sale, a surprising number with so many producers keyed on the harvest. With so many would be buyers tied to the combine seats, the order buyers kicked in and made things happen. The light, green cattle were in great demand. Also, the 13 load lots of yearling steers put a fire under things. Everything else easily found a home at very good prices.
300#-400# (steers & bulls) $290.00 to $343.00 (heifers) $250.00 to $297.50
400#-500# (steers & bulls) $288.00 to $317.00 (heifers) $230.00 to $277.00
