Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — November 13

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1853 head including: 39 bulls, 367 cows, 28 calves, 116 Longhorns, 476 stocker heifers, 478 stocker bulls/steers, 155 feeder heifers, 194 feeder steers. Average prices $664, November 6 $727. A year ago $653. USDA regional market report reflects feeder steers $2-5 lower, with moderate demand for all except long weaned high quality calves. Unlike Nov. 6, DLM had very few weaned calves today. A good indicator of calves coming straight off of the mamas is ratio of bull calves to steers – Nov. 10 it was 55% bulls. All weights of steer/bull calves were lower except 8 weights which were $4 higher. 4-5 weight heifers had double digit gains. A lot of calves and yearlings have hit the market in past 3 weeks so the demand is more selective. Bred cows were $75-100 higher with 2-4 year olds bred 3-5 months bringing $1100-1375 and mid age cows $1050-1375. If you are in the market for replacement quality cattle, the place to be Saturday, November 18 at 12 o’clock is Decatur Livestock Market for the “Fall Roundup” Special Sale.
