Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — April 14

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1095 head including: 40 bulls, 346 cows, 81 calves, 85 Longhorns, 171 stocker heifers, 181 stocker bulls/steers, 65 feeder heifers, 126 feeder bulls/steers. Average prices $1013, April 7 $970. A year ago $747. With the carryover of cows that did not meet the criteria for April 12’s special sale, the ratio of cows/bulls to stockers/feeders pushed the simple average price $43 higher than April 7 and $348 higher than a year ago. Discounting that anomaly, the market remains steady with good demand especially for conditioned stockers ready to turn out on grass. Detailed look at your local market stocker prices April 14 vs April 7 when they featured weaned calves reflects the added value of preconditioned calves. DLM would like to thank the consignors and buyers who made April 12’s “Bringing in the Green” special sale really special.
