MARKETING  THOUGHTS

The market was 2-5 lower this week with the biggest cattle taking most of the discounts. The marketing forecasts are becoming very difficult to predict what is going to happen from week to week with the impacts of the virus. After record high temperatures last week and snow Tuesday morning it seem like everything is having a hard time figuring out which way to go but the sun is shining today and hopes of a brighter future we must hold our ground. We will get through this and with every set back comes a greater recovery that will make us slow down and realize what we have in front of us and be thankful we can do what we do. 

Calves that are pre-conditioned, long weaned, and heifers that are guaranteed open are selling at a premium price.

 To better serve you, please call ahead for cattle consignments and any further marketing advice.
