Now the report from Stockland Livestock.

“This is Jack McQuinness with Stockland Livestock here in Davenport. Light run of cattle. Right at 300 head. Not much of any one class for a true test but stronger again. We were very strong on the cows and bulls. Most of the cows in the high 60s, low 70’s. Some of the better cows into the low 80s. That’s about the same as we saw last week. Bulls topped at 96 and not enough feeder cattle of any weight or class to really test the market but still a very good market for all weights and classes of feeders. We sell cattle here every Monday here at Stockland. You can call us anytime 509-535-2444 or visit our website, Thanks for listening.

Thanks Jack.
