COMMENTS

Slaughter classes steady to 1 higher. Replacement pairs and bred cows  steady to 100.00 per head higher .  Calves and feeder cattle steady on the better quality cattle and 2 to 5 lower on the plainer, lower quality cattle . Numbers are still in our favor, although our Congress has decided to repeal Country of Origin Labeling for the meat industry. We are already seeing the World Trade Org. pushing for beef from Argentina to be allowed in this country after a long ban. I for one like to know where my meat comes from and be allowed to make my own decision. I still believe that the major problem we are facing now is the extreme heat not just here but mainly in the West country where our calves go . All buyers in attendance and all had good orders . Fed cattle in the West trading last week around 1.48 with feedlots asking 1.50 already this week.
