Latest Superior Livestock Market Report Reflects Continued Premiums for Value Added Cattle

Mon, 09 Mar 2020 05:21:46 CDT

Latest Superior Livestock Market Report Reflects Continued Premiums for Value Added Cattle Superior Livestock Auction hosted their March 5th Video Auction live from the Superior Livestock Studio in Fort Worth, TX. Cattle producers offered 24,304 head of calves, yearlings and breeding stock from 24 states for this auction. Cattle were sold on contract to deliver immediately through the end of May 2020. Superior Livestock went live at 7:30am CT with Superior Sunrise and the auction followed at 8am CT. This March 5th Video Auction was broadcast on SLA-TV, Dish Network Ch. 997 and streamed on Superior Livestock Auction’s Click To Bid website. A downwardly trending national market report has everyone paying attention and several outside influences continue to play a role; but one thing remained very evident yesterday, producers who invested in value-added programs continued to see premiums despite the market conditions.


Feeder steers and heifers from regions 3/4/5/6 experienced the uncertainty of the market and were met with lower prices than two weeks ago. The same can be said for feeder steers and heifers from regions 1/2 who were met with demand but also discounted prices. Thursday’s market proved to be a testimony to Superior’s value-added programs as feeder steers and heifers that were marketed on various programs saw premiums as much as $20 to $30 over their non-program contemporaries. All regions of weaned calves saw strong demand as moisture of much of the country gave a boost to grazing cattle who remained steady.   


Superior Livestock’s next offering is our Weekly Superior Livestock Video Auction on March 12th at 10:00 AM CT followed by our Monthly Holstein Steer & Dairy Auction @ 11 AM CT broadcast live from the Superior Livestock Auction Studio in Fort Worth. The consignment deadline for the Weekly Auction is Tuesday, March 10th and the Consignment Deadline for the Monthly Holstein Steer & Dairy Auction is Monday, March 9th. Join Superior Livestock Auction for our next Video Auction on Thursday, March 19th in the Superior Livestock Auction Studio in Fort Worth. Consignment deadline for the Video Auction will be this coming Monday, March 9th. Be sure and visit www.superiorlivestock.com to view our online auction catalog.
