Fri, 01 Jun 2018 05:36:14 CDT

Superior Livestock Sees Higher Calf and Yearling Prices Across the Board in May 31st Sale Superior Livestock Auction hosted their May 31st Video Auction live from their studio in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards. Cattle producers offered 16,214 head of calves, yearlings and breeding stock from 16 states for this auction. Cattle were sold on contract to deliver immediately through the end of January 2019. Superior Livestock went live at 7:30am CT with Superior Sunrise and the auction followed at 8am CT. This May 31st Video Auction was broadcast on the Cowboy Channel and streamed on Superior Livestock Auction’s Click To Bid website. Last week’s higher fed cattle market caused feeder prices to break out with active bidding and increased demand, market conditions that Superior Livestock was able to capitalize on and resulted in an upwardly trending market report.

Compared to Superior’s last offering, regions 3/4/5/6 yearling steers were $7-10 higher; while yearling heifers from the same regions saw an increase of $5-8. Regions 3/4/5/6 weaned steer calves were $10-12 higher while weaned heifer calves increased $10-15. Florida, Georgia & Alabama calves offered during this auction were steady to $10-15 higher. Moving to regions 1 & 2 yearling steers were $8-12 higher; while yearling heifers saw an increase of $6-9. Weaned steer calves from regions 1 & 2 were $10-15 higher while weaned heifer calves increased $8-10.

Join Superior Livestock for their next offering in Council Bluffs, IA for the Corn Belt Classic. To help better address the needs of Superior’s increasing seller and buyer base Superior Livestock has begun offering bi-weekly Video Auctions broadcast on superiorclicktobid.com. The next of these offerings will be June 7th with a consignment deadline of Tuesday June 5th.
