COMMENTS

Slaughter classes sold steady to very firm.  Calves and feeder cattle steady to 3 dollars higher. Replacement cows  steady on a very light supply . Fed cattle  in the Western feedlots made history again last week selling @ 168.00 to 170.50 for the first time ever. I have about run out of words to describe our market. It continues to get stronger nationwide and we are seeing more demand each week. It is a great time to be in the cattle business and it has been a long time coming. As I said before, it is our turn. Enjoy!!

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2014, WE WILL SELL 12 REGISTERED HEREFORD BULLS COMING 2 YEARS OLD. 8 ARE POLLED AND 4 ARE HORNED. BULLS HAVE BEEN RAISED ON GRASS AND ARE READY TO GO TO WORK. ALL HAVE PAPERS. BULLS WILL SELL @ APPROX. 2:00 P.M.

A little note: With all the talk we hear about HIGH cattle and High BEEF prices, I want to know Compared to What? Bought a new pick up or piece of equipment lately ? Gas or diesel fuel, fertilizer, or non meat related items in the grocery store? For years we have been the step child of the FOOD industry, and we produce the best and safest beef in the world. I think cattle prices are where they should be in comparison. IT IS OUR TURN.

On  another note, this is  our 22nd year here at Dothan Livestock and we want to thank all of our friends and customers, both buyers and sellers, for your trust in us over the years and we will continue to work hard to keep that trust. We know that we could not be here except for all of you. From all of us here at DLC, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!!!!

Also, a reminder on our weekend receiving hours:
Saturday 7:00 am to 4:00 pm
Sunday 7:00 am to 7:00 pm

Please call ahead if you will be bringing cattle after these hours, and we will make arrangements.
