The auction sale at Lampasas Cattle barn starts at 12:30pm today. At last week’s sale there were 838 head on hand and prices were considerably lower on feeders, as much as $5-$7 down on the lower quality calves and $3-$4 lower on better offerings. There were some young to mid age cow/calf pairs last week.
We’ll see how a good rain, along with some muddy pastures, affects the market today.
Lampasas Cattle Auction is one of the better ranch area markets in Central Texas to gauge where the cattle market is going.
