This week the sale was on fire. Cows and bulls were $4.00/cwt higher in active trading. Feeder cattle and light calves were also higher with a lot of buyers on the market. The bred cows sold awesome. They had a lot of quality and were close up calves.

Now for the details…

  • Eddie Grauf sold 500# steers for $158. That was the very top of the market, and the cattle were fancy for kind. His 585# steers brought $137.25. Another great sale were his heifers: at 610# they brought $123.75.
  • Aaron Cognina sold 671# steers for $132.
  • Romaldo Martin sold 750# steers for $125 – the top on big cattle.
  • Thomas Williams sold 840# steers for $113.
  • William Wrankle sold 610# steers for $139.75.
  • The heifers were all across the board but Wilber Azevedo sold 400# heifers for $146 – great sale.
  • Cody Keller sold 805# heifers for $103.
  • Romaldo Martin sold 610# heifers for $119.50 – another great sale on some fancy heifers.
  • Linda and Bob Rohrer sold 370# heifers for $140.50 and bull calves at 380# for $148 – that was outstanding.
  • Wyatt Williamson sold close up springing young cows for $1525.
  • Terry Walker sold 1 draft of dairy cross pairs weighing 940# for $1450.

This week was our first special, and the market was rocking. We were scheduled to sell one load of young cows with big calves at their side and bred back, but the weather just didn’t cooperate so we will keep you posted when we can get them out. We will be posting that information on our web page or just call if you have interest.

If you are up North, this is the last week we will be receiving cattle at Baxman’s. If you need your cattle picked up or need a place to drop your cattle off, please contact Rick Collins (707) 803-3334 or Paul Reed (719) 850-0900.

I’ll see you next week,
