Superior Livestock's Labor Day Sale Saw Steady to Higher Money Across the USWed, 20 Sep 2017 06:00:18 CDT
Superior Livestock Auction ended their summer sales tour back in Fort Worth, Texas with their Labor Day offering broadcast live from the Superior Livestock Studio. Cattle producers offered 50,000 head of calves, yearlings and breeding stock from 28 states for this auction with cattle selling on contracts to deliver immediately through the end of February 2018. As outside market pressures and natural disasters continued to play a large roll in daily trading; all eyes were on Superior to see if they could yet again deliver a strong offering. As seen all summer long Superiorís reputation, buyer base and value added programs did not disappoint; producers consigning saw deserved premiums and set the bar again for the futures market.

Yearling steers from regions 1 and 2 were steady to $2 higher and yearling heifers from these regions saw an increase of $4 to $5 higher. Weaned steer calves from regions 3, 4, 5 and 6 saw a substantial increase of $3 to $5 while those weaned heifer calves remained steady. Calves on cows from regions 3, 4, 5, and 6 also remained steady from Superiorís last offering.
