East Texas Market Report

Post by hurleyjd » Sat Oct 12, 2019 7:59 am

Here are the results of the latest sales reports for Winnsboro Livestock and also Sulphur Springs Report. Prices show to be pretty consistent and not like that is being reporting elsewhere. Not as good as times past but not bad considering.

Bought a three 5 year old cows last week that were 4 and 5 months breed. They averaged $.57 a pound as just about every bred cow that was not at least 7 or 8 months bred were sold by the pound. Nobody wanted to feed them I guess.

Texas feed is that short, or no one believes in the cattle market?

More or less both...however you still have to trade in 2 good really good 550 lb calves to but a heavy bred heifer.

Myself, I have the hay and will probably have the winter pasture but lack the faith the return on investment will get better anytime soon.

I was playing with some ROI estimates this weekend. Crops look better than cow/calf with the current prices, and I don't think the Chinese are going to buy boatloads of beef.

Hard cull'in is called for. :nod: Neighbor sold almost half his cow herd and kept all the calves. Averaged 50 cents on cull cows...
