Auction Summary

We sold 876 head this week. The market was a little softer this week on all the stocker and feeder cattle. Weigh cows and bulls were mostly steady.

Next week: 70 to 80 head of Red Angus X cows to be preg tested here. Pairs and red angus x calves coming as well. This will be a total dispersal. These cows are coming out of really rough country and bred to Red Angus Bulls.

60 Head of good black calves.

May 1st is our annual Stocker Feeder Sale as well as our Costumer Appreciation BBQ. Hope to see you here.
