Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — January 19

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 2019 head including: 23 bulls, 337 cows, 63 calves, 118 Longhorns, 414 stocker heifers, 440 stocker bulls/steers, 266 feeder heifers, 358 feeder bulls/steers. Average prices $1272, January 12 $1248. A year ago $873. Without strong local demand for feeder calves/yearlings your local market followed the national trend on 6-8 weight feeders but, fortunately, went against the national trend as the 2-5 weight calves advanced in prices. Order buyers have very tight buying parameters with demand mostly moderate as the futures market continues the decline that started in mid December. Large shipments of cattle coming off of wheat are pushing short term supply beyond demand. Bred cows and pairs $200-300 higher, reflecting good demand and better selection.
