Special Store Cattle Sale
(850 last sale)
Market dearer on back of rain down south and dwindling numbers
Numbers continued to fall for today’s store sale with just under 500 cattle on offer. Scott Simshauser kicked off the job saying it’s “obvious where numbers are heading and that things will only get worse, but rain down south will make a difference.” That “prediction” rang true with agents agreeing that the market was $50-$100 dearer, with not a lot of weight or quality on offer, but many people realizing that numbers are dwindling as are opportunities to buy. Watch school-based trainee, Woody Dowe give this week’s full market wrap on our Facebook page.
