Auction Summary

We sold 1309 head this week. Good weaned calves were steady to $5 higher, unweaned calves were $3 to $5 cheaper. Lesser quality calves were $3 to $5 cheaper as well!  Yearlings were steady to a touch higher! Not a good test of bred cows and pairs. Weigh cows were $2 to $3 lower than last week.

Next week we will have the Arizona Cattle Growers Association calf roll over as well as our fall special sale.
