Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — December 3

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 3018 head including: 42 bulls, 506 cows, 73 calves, 264 Longhorns, 795 stocker heifers, 790 stocker bulls/steers, 225 feeder heifers, 341 feeder steers. Negative market issues to overcome: Glut of cattle hitting markets recently, USDA reporting feeders $1-5 lower - steer calves up to $10 lower – plus, projected strong winter storms later in the week. In spite of this dark cloud, your local market, led by the weaned calf segment, had higher prices on 3-8 weight steers. 2-3 weight calves backed down from Nov. 26. Except for 4-5 weights, the heifers were $2-5 lower. Bred cows steady to $150 higher. Packer prices remain under pressure of both quantity and quality of supply – high ratio of low yielding cows.
