Solid Demand Seen at the Superior Livestock Big Horn Classic

Thu, 29 Aug 2019 15:05:17 CDT

Superior Livestock Auction continued its summer auction run with the “Big Horn Classic”, broadcast live from the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Sheridan, Wyoming August 19th-23rd. Cattle producers offered 208,800 head of calves, feeders and breeding stock from thirty-one states with cattle being sold on contract to deliver immediately through the end of February 2020. The auction kicked off daily with a live broadcast of Superior Sunrise at 7:30am MT followed by the auction starting at 8am MT. The “Big Horn Classic” was broadcast live on SLA-TV Dish Channel 997 and was streamed on Superior Livestock Auction’s Click To Bid website. Although there are many outside influences still effecting the industry, Superior’s overall market remained unaffected during last week’s Big Horn Classic offering. The most demand was seen in Superior program cattle and buyer participation was strong all week especially Thursday when regional cattle were selling.


Region 3/4/5/6 weaned calves and calves on cows were met with a weaker undertone, $4-$8 lower than Superior’s last offering, but were still selling at a premium to commodity calves. Superior saw a very strong market on all classes of yearlings with a large crowd on hand. Program yearlings were again rewarded with a $15 to $25 premium over the non-program cattle. Region 1 & 2 weaned calves witnessed strong demand with prices on five weights selling in a range from $160 to $190 cwt depending largely on vac programs and value added programs. Six weight calves sold in a range from $150 to $165 cwt with program cattle again seeing a $15 to $20 premium.


Join Superior Livestock Auction our next auction “Labor Day” September 11th-12th. Broadcast live from the Superior Livestock’s Fort Worth studio. Superior Livestock’s next offering is the Weekly Superior Video Auction on September 5th with a consignment deadline of September 3rd. Be sure and visit www.superiorlivestock.com to view our online auction catalog. For a buyers’ number or more information on becoming a consigner please call our Fort Worth office at 800-422-2117.


In order to better serve Superior’s growing customer base, Superior is excited to announce the evolution of SLA-TV in 2019. Superior is the largest livestock auction in the United State and markets well over one million head of cattle annually. With over 400 representatives located throughout the United States, Superior provides a complete national marketing network that serves both buyers and sellers.
