Cattle Market Report

Lampasas Cattle Auction’s weekly sale took place here on Wednesday with 410 head coming through the auction ring. That was down from last week’s 545 head because of wet pastures and well down from last year’s 690 head.

Prices were $3-$5 lower on feeder cattle but steady on all classes of slaughter cattle.
