Hi folks,  This week's auction was our December bred cow sale along with the annual Bull Sale for the Lonnie Cripps family, and we filled the arena to the rafters with folks shopping for bulls and for bred stock! 

The front end of the bred cow and heifer trade was strong with our advertised load of Black Angus heifers bringing $2925 hd and the Red Angus heifers reaching the $2900 mark.  Solid mouth and younger cows ranged in price from $2000-$2650, and the bulk of the short-term cows that were in good condition and calving early brought from $1600-$1900. The Cripps family sold bulls to an active set of buyers, with the two top bulls bringing $8250 & $8000, and their overall average on 44 head was right at $3900. 

We sold about 150 head of butcher cows along with a few bulls on this final sale of the year, and that trade would be steady on the bulls with weaker undertones on the cow side of the trade.  Not enough feeders on hand this week to establish any trend, but the futures trade has continued to be roughed up and I think everyone will be glad to have a couple weeks off for Christmas.

We are closed for the next two weeks, and then we'll be back selling cattle on the 6th of January. As we bring our marketing for 2014 to a close, we want to extend a big thank-you to our crew, our buyers, and all of you producers that consigned cattle to Lewistown Livestock in this past year. 

Thanks for sending us your business, and may 2015 be as blessed one for each and everyone involved in agriculture and especially in the livestock business.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all and don't forget the big annual "New Year's Eve" dance at the trade center with Kyle Shobe and the Walk'em Boys providing a wonderful evening of dancing and fun for the entire family. We'll see you all there!!

We'll see ya January 6th for our next cattle sale here at Lewistown Livestock......Lyle
