Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — November 12

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1829 head including: 17 bulls, 387 cows, 48 calves, 84 Longhorns, 465 stocker heifers, 485 stocker bulls/steers, 154 feeder heifers, 189 feeder bulls/steers. USDA quoted the regional market $6-8/cwt lower on feeders; $5-6 lower on calves with moderate demand at best - partially in response to heavy snowfall in the market area. Several of the order buyers at DLM received phone calls to pull back orders for cattle that need to be shipped north. In addition to the weather, the local market had a ratio of lesser quality cattle, i.e. older, shelly cows and calves that are not market ready, especially for the frigid weather conditions. The better cattle followed the pattern of the USDA report. DLM had an uptick on high yielding packer cows mostly selling at $46-50/cwt, $3-4 higher than recent weeks. The snow issue also put a damper on bred cows since several orders for cows to ship to the Midwest were put in hold. Snow is not forecasted for Saturday, November 17, so DLM anticipate a positive experience for their 26th annual “Fall Roundup” Special Replacement sale starting at 12 noon. Cattle will be ready for you to view, Friday, November 16.
