Thursday July 12, 2018

A GOOD SEASONAL RUN MET A GOOD DEMAND TODAY. THE LIGHT GRASS CALVES SOLD STEADY TO THE QUALITY OFFERED. THE HEAVY FEEDERS FOLLOWED THE KILL PRICE WHICH WAS A PINCH HIGHER THIS WEEK. KILL COWS AND BULLS WERE A BIT STRONGER- AT LEAST THEY ARE MOVING, FOR NOW, IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. I'M TOLD THE FATS ARE CURRENT. I STILL SUSPECT THAT THERE IS A WALL OF FATS GOING TO HIT THE MARKET SOON WHICH MEANS A DOWN IN THE FAT PRICE. BUT ALL IN ALL - -THE FALL IS LOOKING BETTER THAN ORIGINALLY THOUGHT. ON ANOTHER NOTE....STAY TUNED!
