COMMENTS

Slaughter classes steady . Replacement pairs and  bred cows  steady . Calves and feeder cattle trading mostly 6 to 10 lower .Market still fairly active and seemed to steady up as the day went on.The general feeling is that this is a market correction as we usually see this time of year. It was helped by the Chinese market situation and Chinese influence on our stock market. Our market looks very solid for the future. We will always have bumps in the road, but unlike past years, we have the numbers on our side. Now, if we could just get our country`s leaders (if we had any) and policy makers to make policy that would help our Agriculture instead of our competitor Nations, we could make some headway in all of Agriculture. Wishful thinking I guess.

 

Fed cattle in the West trading steady last week @ 1.45 to 1.48
