Packer cows are getting cheaper. Plants in Texas took $6 off saying they are covered up.

Talking heads are saying that if grain stays cheap and the dollar stays down and US demand stays strong - - then feeders will be over U$S 170. Its in the bag! :banana: Time to buy some more cows. :nod:

Not really. A friend buys for several plants and he says they are coming from the north and west.

I sold the bull calves today. They were #650-850 and and brought 125-130. No complaints here.

Saw lots of black cows go thru and bring 50 cents. That's brutal.

Where do you sell? I went by Beeville sale last Friday but it was over and they were loading out when I got there.

Cuero, bigger sale. Don't really care for Beeville or Nixon sales. Halletsville would be my #2.

Until I read sale report and found out I was in the top third. Now my feelings are fine I just hurt.

I tool a big 1475 lb packer to Buffalo last Saturday and she brought .66 lb. I was very pleased. She sold towards the last and for some reason the sale price got stronger as the day went. Most of the starters were bringing .55 and it trended up from there with the top old cow selling at .72 lb. They had probably 200 packer cows.

Calf prices are trending up here. Five wt. steer VOG is about $1.33. :banana: The boys are getting excited and pulling creep feeders out of the trees.

Short bred cows look cheap - - $850 to $1150. Seems to take a while for pricing changes to soak in.

5wt steers here in the high 1.50's. Things are trading,good except for slaughter cows and slaughter bulls. They are much cheaper.
