Most of these heifers weighed from 525-625# and brought $160-180/cwt. Thank you to all of our new consignors and repeat consignors as well for believing in us to market your livestock!

Gainesville Friday

Gainesville, TX — September 15

(Special) Receipts at Gainesville Livestock Market, Inc.: 1396. The market was steady to $3 cheaper on calves. This mainly due to calf customers are busy trying to get their wheat put in. We run into this every year, the wheat customers are to busy to start any calves until they get done planting so all the calves have to end up in the grow yard. The feeder cattle on the yearlings was steady. The heavy calves was $2-4 cheaper. Stock cows steady and packer cost $4-6 lower mainly because they are running a lot of cows in the north due to drought and several in south because of floods and there is a lot of cows that was put on feed earlier this year that are coming out now. Its a supply and demand issue for a while. Gainesville is now taking consignments for their Female Replacement Sale on Wednesday, October 25.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — September 18

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 2064 head including: 38 bulls, 347 cows, 31 calves, 196 Longhorns, 429 stocker heifers, 521 stocker bulls/steers, 198 feeder heifers, 304 feeder bulls/steers. Average prices $661, September 11 $729. A year ago $682. The regional USDA market summary called feeders steady to $1 higher, lower undertone for calves with $5 discount and little demand for unweaned calves. Decatur had $6-7 gains on high prices for steers while average prices were $1-5 lower because of high ratio of milk fat, bawling calves. It probably sounds like a broken record related to the advantage of conditioned, market ready calves. It is not feasible for many of Decatur’s customers to wean your calves, but it would benefit our industry to follow a comprehensive vaccination program that includes IBR, BVD, BRD, PI3, BRSV – at least this would reduce the number of calves in the sick pens. Most of the bred cattle were heifers and 2 year olds, 2-4 months bred. The top end had good demand at $1100-1390. The glut of cows and bulls hitting the packing plants because of floods and drought continue to negatively impact the market. The system is stretched beyond practical limits. It is not a human created situation such as the gasoline hysteria, rather real cattle with real capacity issues. The result was packer prices $8-11 lower than Sept. 11.
