Weekly Market Report

Ogallala Livestock Auction Market

We sold 9,637 cattle of all classes this week in three sales. On Monday, January 8th, 2,137 head of Bred Stockcows and Heifers sold. Wednesday, January 10, we had 795 head of Butcher & Feeding Cows, Bulls & Heiferettes. The week ended with 6,705 head marketed during our First Stock Show Special Stocker and Feeder Sale. This marks the 60th year of the Stock Show Special Sales in January. Steers weighing less then 600 lbs brought $1.00 to $5.00 higher compared to last week and over 600 lbs called $6.00 to $10.00 lower. All weight classes of heifers were $4.00 to $9.00 lower. Declining CME Feeder and Live Cattle quotes for the last week and a major winter storm factored into a softer market. Buyer attendance and activity was good just at lower levels.
