Green City livestock sales report

The Green City Livestock Auction, Green City, Mo., reported receipts of 453 head on Oct. 12, according to the Missouri Department of Agriculture Market News, Jefferson City, Mo.

Demand was very good with the supply consisting of second and third period stock cows and several cow and calf pairs. It was the first replacement cow sale of the season with not a big run but some very good quality cows and pairs were available in the offering. The cow prices were reflective of the sharply higher calf and yearling market that continues to set new record prices almost every week. Slaughter cows were steady compared to the previous test.

Replacement cows: Medium and large frame 1 to 2, 2 to 6 years 1050 to 1450 lbs., second and third stages pregnant 1600.00 to 1800.00/head, package 1850.00/head; 6 years to solid mouth, 1000 to 1200 lbs., mostly second period pregnant 1350.00 to 1450.00/head.

Pairs: Medium and large frame 1 to 2, 2 to 5 years 1000 to 1250 lbs., with baby to 200-lb. calves 2300.00 to 2500.00/pair.

Slaughter cows: Breaking, 75% to 80% lean, 81.00 to 84.50; high dressing, 85.00 to 87.25. Boning, 80% to 85% lean, 75.00 to 79.50; high dressing, 81.50 to 89.00; low dressing, 71.50 to 75.00. Lean, 85% to 90% lean, 66.00 to 70.00; low dressing, 61.50 to 66.00.
