Cows stay on green pasture; more feeder cattle head to auction

Audio-Cows stay on green pasture; more feeder cattle head to auction

While we may be seeing less slaughter cows because of good pasture conditions, it is time for those Flint Hill feeder cattle to come to town and prices are lower because of it.

Feeder cattle continue to come of the Flint Hills and Osage grazing areas and there was another good run of heavy weight feeder cattle with lots of steers over 800 lbs. and heifers over 700 lbs. Prices were mostly $2-3 lower but there was some improvement on heifers over 700 lbs., which were lower last week.

Slaughter cow prices improved even though the cow meat prices slipped down lower compared to last week. The price improvement was mostly because of the smaller numbers of cows at the auction barns which is normal this time of the year when pasture conditions are good.
