COMMENTS

WE WILL BE OPEN NEXT MONDAY, LABOR, AND BE RECIEVING CATTLE DURING OUR REGULAR WEEKEND HOURS!! ALSO ON LABOR DAY:

4- Horned Herford bulls, 18-months – 21/2 years old, 1- Polled Hereford bull 3- years old, & 1- Charolais bull 2- years old.

Slaughter classes sold steady to 2 higher  . Calves and feeder cattle unevenly steady. Still working on a very good market with powerful demand.   Replacement cows and pairs selling steady on a light supply of good quality young cattle. It is a mighty good time to be in the cattle buisiness. The cattle on feed report out this past Friday confirms that the numbers are on our side and the demand is as strong as ever. Our future looks bright. Fed cattle trade in the West lower again @ 153.00 to 156.00. Folks, we are blessed with a very strong market that looks like it is here to stay for a long time. Demand for our cattle is the strongest ever.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR HOME PAGE FOR INFO ON UPCOMING SALES AND EVENTS. Coming Friday, Sept. 26, The 2nd Annual Melvin Adams Farms Bred Heifer Sale. 360 of the best bred heifers in this country. To view pictures, go to our home page and click on pictures.

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.
