Only 2 more weeks of home school and this term will be finished!! Very much a buyer’s market today in the dairy cow division. Extreme top was $1,400 but you could buy a lot of good cows for $800 to $1,100. Good Holstein springers$800 to $1,100. Open heifers$.50 to $.85/lb. with a few up to $.95. Single birth heifer calves $15 to $45 per head. Sold 115 feeder cattle. Holstein steers mostl $.65 to $.90/lb. Again no test on fat cattle with producers in wait-and-see mode hoping packing plant issues and prices straighten out. Cull cow market continues to be unsettled averaging about a dime lower than last week. Most cows between $.38 and $.48 top $.4950. Hay prices continue strong. Several semi loads western alfalfa 3x4x8 all sold $145-$175/bale. Good grass hay rounds and 3x3x8 squares all sold $55 to $90/bale. Large square straw $50 to $60/bale. Small squares straw & grass $3 to $4.50/bale. We sure are glad for everyone of our consignors & buyers!!
