Cattle Market Report

Lampasas Cattle Auction’s weekly sale took place yesterday here and it was big again. 838 head came through the ring, down from last week’s 938 head but still above average as the drought causes ranchers to lower their inventories. A year ago the sale was just 319 head.

Local ranchers, even more so than home owners, are hoping for a good rain this week.

Prices were down $5-$7/cwt on low quality feeder calves this week, $3-$4/cwt down on higher quality. Slaughter cows and bulls were steady.
