The Market Report

September 22, 2020   

 

      

 

This week was another great sale. Even though the numbers were not great the prices have been. Light cattle continue a path that exceeds the value of fat cattle and I think we can count on that because of the optimism in this great business. The prospect for grass in the coming year has stocker people on the market early this year trying to get some inventory before the rain. Usually the rain brings increased demand and higher prices. We’re not sure that will happen this year, but we’ll take the prices and run.

It would be negligent to fail to talk about bulls again at this time. On Saturday, October 3rd we will be selling 150 of the best ANGUS bulls you can buy anywhere in the west.  Here’s what makes them better, they come with a $ PROFIT number that is available to all producers of Angus bulls. The computer has taken over in a lot of industries nationwide and raising bulls is no exception. You can’t tell by just looking at a bull how it will perform.  Nonetheless you can look at his genetic back ground, then feed test him for feed efficiency and throw all that information into a computer and let a patented process kick out a number that tells you just what that bull is going to be worth to you over the next four years servicing 25 cows/year. The computer can balance the EPD’s and spit out a number you could never compute on your own no matter how long you’ve studied his EPD’s. The higher $ PROFIT number in the bull you buy will tell you how much better your calves will perform for those that buy them next year.

We will be selling a lot of program cattle next year and the buyers will be keeping records for those that might want them. It will also tell them which cattle they will be buying in the future. Calves sired by high $ PROFIT BULLS will produce the kind of calves these buyers are looking for because they feed more efficiently, have better carcass data and fit the box for their customers.
So, Saturday October 3rd is a great opportunity to jump forward into producing the most futuristic calves on the market by selecting Topline Leachman Bulls to put on your cows next year.
