Prices remain really good this week. The overall quality of cows and bulls was off a little but prices still remained high. We had a good run of yearlings and they were still in high demand.

Don’t forget about our slaughter only sale December 29, 2014.

Hines Farms topped the slaughter bull market this week with $140.00 bought by Brown Packing. Cecil Benton sold the top slaughter cow this week at $120.00 bought by Brown Packing. Charles Edwards and A & A Cattle sold the highest price replacement cows at $167.50 bought by Foy Reynolds Cattle and Sherod Keen respectively. Reet Shaw topped the replacement bull market with $119.00 bought by Michael Wilkerson. Curtis Hampton sold the high price pair this week at $2025.00 bought by Frank Smith and the high price yearling went to E. D. Norfleet at $470.00 sold by Harold Stokes.
