COMMENTS

Slaughter classes sold 2 to 3 higher.  Calves and feeder cattle steady to very firm. Replacement cows and pairs steady on a very light supply . Fed cattle  in the Western feedlots made history again selling @ 170.00 to 172.00 . Just a very good market on outstanding demand.

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.
