Average prices $1247, October 27 $1233. A year ago $849. A good selection of weaned calves pushed prices higher including breaking through the $3 threshold at $3.09/# on 5 weight steers. 63% of steers were weaned 5-6 weights, with double digit price gains as compared to Oct. 27. Better kind of 3-4 weight calves are in good demand in anticipation of demand for wheat grazing. Very few pairs and young bred cows coming to town and with the projected rain there may be even fewer.
