We sold calves this past weekend in Buffalo. 1.36-1.79 a pound depending on weight. They only had about 1400 head this weekend

You can download a app on your phone for current, regional prices

Cattle market mobile

Download it- go to - other useful tools - select calf calculator- then select home location (state and next a town close to your area )
- category - approx weight - frame - then select GET ESTIMATED PRICE

This will give you a idea of current calf prices in your area of state
It usually is pretty close on current market prices

Last week prices seemed good and stable

Hope it helps for you

We brought several BRED cows that palpated and wanted them sold as stocker cows.
Yeah, they went for packer cows. A bred 1200# cow went for about $700. prices are low. Its no wonder i couldnít sell our herd on our own. Apparently we are too high for bred cows and heifers that will palpate out even though our cows look 100 times better than what runs through the auction

Depends on what market you are in. Stockers and feeders are up. Cull cows and replacements are down.

Its' all about the cycle. Stockers and feeders are normally up now through September. Cull cows are normally down until November - Dec.

And then some.

Hay is going to be in high demand again. Corn crops are failing. Looks like another expensive winter.

But they never seem to be cheap when you are trying to buy some.

We sold a few in Crockett a couple of weeks ago and I was not very happy. Sold some older cow/calf pairs and they only brought $800 for the pair. They funny thing about it we sold another cow that had not bred back in 2 years and she brought $800 by herself. Sometimes it makes no sense what goes on at a cattle sale. One thing for sure hay is going to climb in price if we don’t get some more rain

Yep you end up forced to sell them for half price and then to build back up after the drought you have to pay double...but everyone wants to be a cowboy....LOL.

Thanks!


Y'all need some of our rain. We are 10" above normal year to date rainfall. We had 18 straight days of rain to close out May. It's killing the home building business. We had 10 straight dry days to start June and folks around here have just cut hay for the second time this year. Started raining again yesterday.

Are dairy steers sold normally at the same price? Just at the low end of the current range Iím assuming?

Dairy steers are always going to be less than beef steers

You need to split your pairs. Also you're selling short/solid cows which will sell by the pound.

Went to the Livingston auction today. Don’t think I saw a pair sell for under a thousand bucks. A lot went for higher and some were older Mona’s. I was really surprised. Saw some tigers I wanted but to rich for what I wanted to spend.
