Cattle Market Report

Lampasas Cattle Auction’s weekly sale took place yesterday here and it was a big sale. 938 head came through the ring, up from 777 head last week, likely due to the concerns over drought. It was way up from last year’s 505 head at this time.

Prices were down a bit on light weight feeders but $2 to $3 higher on heavier feeders. Slaughter cattle were steady to weak
