There were good numbers at Lampasas Cattle Auction's weekly sale on Wednesday with 852 head thru the ring. That was much higher than last week's typical 456 head and last year's 434.

For the first time in a while we saw weaker prices at the sale. Feeder steers and heifers were $7-$18/cwt lower and slaughter cattle were steady to $4 lower.

300-400lb steers were $2.84-$3.42/lb, heifers $2.42-$3.02

400-500lb steers $2.57-$3.18 and heifers $2.28-$2.62

They hope that anyone interested in the idea will come by and sign their petition.
