203 cattle went to slaughter in today's sale.  The 141 fed cattle sold $2-$3 lower, but there weren't a lot of  high yielding top of the line choice cattle.  Cows were also lower by a dollar or two.  Not enough bulls sold to get a market trend.

Thursday, January 18, 2018 - Special Feeder Sale


632 cattle sold at Fairview Sale Barn today with most of the feeders without shots, non-weaned, or still bulls.  Compared to the wean/vac sale things were cheaper as expected.  Buyers prefer to take home the better managed cattle and will pay more for them.  It pays to pay the veterinarian and that fact is confirmed by the buying crowd.

Steers/Bulls      
  300-500# 176.00-211.00  
  500-600# 140.00-178.00  
  600-700# 140.00-162.00  
  700-800# 130.00-151.50  
  800-900# 110.00-133.00  
       
Heifers      
  300-500# 135.00-161.00
