Cow Calf Pairs up to 1650.00
Slaughter classes 5 to 6 lower . Replacement pairs and bred cows sold steady . Calves and feeder cattle mostly steady on heifers but 5 to 10 lower on steers and especially on bull calves. All buyers present but demand certainly weaker. I think we will probably see an unpredictable market for the rest of this year and hopefully it will be more settled after the first of next year. So many things affecting the market right now, not just the cattle market but all markets, certainly the situation in the Middle East is a major factor. And then there is the weather, a winter storm is moving into the West and Mid West, the major cattle feeding areas.
.Fed cattle in the West lower last week @ 1.29 – 1.31.
