Slaughter cows and bulls were 3 to 5 higher. Replacement bred cows and cow calf pairs steady . Calves and feeder cattle steady to 3 dollars lower. Market is still very active on very strong buyer demand. Fed cattle in the West slipped lower last week @ 138- 140, still a good fed cattle market. Fed cattle supplies are current and beef demand is very good. The Chinese Market opening up will help some although a lot of beef has been going to China through Hong Kong and Vietnam. The difference is this will open our market to the growing Chinese middle class that have money and want our Superb Beef!!
NEXT MONDAY, 5-22, WE WILL HAVE A HERD OF 35 BLACK AND BLACK BALDIE COWS, MOST WITH CALVES AT SIDE.
