Not sure about that. Maybe dairy cows. I’d be on a beach with my hot wife if I could get 2300 per head. I wonder about the fires and stuff also. 10 a year ago and now 87 in 6 months something’s not right

Out of all the replies this one is the most accurate of the current market . SniperB market report is from March 10 with only 300 head . Awfully small sale to set a market for the day .
Cash is and has been far exceeding the board for quite a while now due to lack of cattle . Certain areas and markets are always going to be lower due to lack of quality and numbers . I order buy cattle and travel to different salebarns . And have watched the cash market keep climbing since early spring . As far as the folks getting out - It's like any business everyone's decision to get out is different

Didnt notice the date as that was in the paper.

From the website you can find more recent sales, the June 8 sale was closer to 700 head total. Prices have increased from a cursory look: https://www.uproducers.com/market/gallipolis-oh-united-producers/

For a taste of current markets look up Hub City Livestock , Aberdeen SD . Or Basset livestock , Basset NE
That will give anyone a idea of what the market is doing . They usually have large enough sales to show a true test of the market for that week

I saw a guy selling quarters / halves last night in a add local to me. $2.80 a pound hanging weight and $1.20 processing. It did not say if they grain fed or not.

Corn soybeans wheat prices are sky high. (This is what they should be). Inputs to grow those crops are sky high. If you don’t think you can afford to feed your livestock you must downsize and do it while they have weight. Pasture needs rain…but not too much to make hay. Couple all this with a decent price for your herd and it’s time to sell out.

I was in sale barn a few weeks ago and a old man called in and request them to come get his herd of 90 head . He had no help and couldn't drive anymore . The owner of sale barn said they get a couple calls a week like that .
