Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — June 22

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 876 head including: 18 bulls, 139 cows, 26 calves, 73 Longhorns, 155 stocker heifers, 199 stocker bulls/steers, 83 feeder heifers, 183 feeder bulls/steers. Average prices $1210, June 15 $1288. A year ago $1107. The market fundamentals remain steady with the variables being scattered floods, high humidity and inconsistent quality. Nationally the feeder market was steady to $2 higher on yearlings - the old saying that fat and black are beautiful in cattle is not necessarily true with high humidity causing heat index to bounce up and milk fat calves being discounted. Decatur had good selection of 5-6 weight dried out heifers that pushed weight average prices $8-11 higher than June 15.

Oklahoma City Monday

Oklahoma City, OK — June 22

(F‑S) Receipts at Oklahoma National Stockyards: 4,690. Feeder steers and heifers steady to $2 higher. Steer and heifer calves too lightly tested for market trend. Demand remains very good for feeder cattle despite another week of lower slaughter cattle prices. Higher prices in the auction today matched the gains recognized by the CME Feeder Cattle futures. Quality was plain to average but flesh conditions were favorable to buyers with the majority of the offerings average to thin fleshed. Warm weather returned to the state over the weekend, and no rain is in the forecast until next weekend. This will allow the wheat harvest to make some much needed progress, as the Oklahoma Wheat Commission shows only 41 percent of the wheat crop has been harvested.
