Slaughter Cows & bulls sold real good this week, higher by serveral dollars! Short supply with good demand! Same thing goes for Calf prices, higher across the board! These high prices are making everyone a little nervous, but it’s strictly supply and demand! All indications are that we are in for a few good years. The downside is it’s gonna take a lot of money to replace old cows and I imagine the Bull Sales this Fall are going to be considerably higher! But, we need to enjoy it while it last…It’s been a long time coming!

Lightsey Cattle Co., Lake Wales, topped the Calf Market with a high of $4.70 bought by B & M Cattle.
Seminole Tribe, Okeechobee and Rio Ranch, Okeechobee both topped the Slaughter Cow Market with a high of $1.28 bought by Florida Beef.

Special Upcoming Sales:
Oct 3: Bred Heifer & Cow Sale
Oct 10: “44 Farms” Angus Bull Sale
Oct 17: “Little Creek Farms” Brangus Bull Sale plus 50 head (Registered & Commercial) Brangus Heifers.

Update ya next week,
