Yesterday at the Sale Barn

Postby Silver » Sat Nov 05, 2016 9:39 am

It looked to me as thought the market has firmed and even rebounded a bit. At least yesterday, in one little auction barn, in northern Canada.
Our mongrel steer calves weighed up nicely this year averaging 662 pounds straight through and fetched and average price of $1,090. One pen of 20 steers at 762 pounds commanded $1,205 per head which was in the end the tops of the sale.
It sure wasn't last years prices, but better than I had feared it would be, and certainly not a wreck.

Sounds good. Congratulations! I think the market has come back some, not sure why it fell so far so fast.

How would that calculate into US dollars?

Congratulations, sounds like business is booming north of the border.
