$128+cwt Tama

Iowa fats today.  Wednesday auction.

some packer cows near $80 cwt there today too.

kinda thinking cows could have a run to the mid 90's or mid 100 to 110 cwt range by August.

guess we'll see.

Re: $128+cwt Tama

There's  a big difference in cows.

 

those Shelly 65 cent cows are actually not much (  need 60 to 100 days of feed ) as compared to a Commercial kinda cow.

 

Commercial as you know are thee same as Choice Quality Grade ( same marbling  ) except for age.

 

Thats why there's $77 to $82cwt cows there in Your area too.

 

Takes some body condition And just a bare grease cover to make Commercial.

 

Comercial is the steaks for outfits like Golden Corral , bonanza , western sizzlen , etc etc etc

Re: $128+cwt Tama,

wrightcattle,

 

I agree, but unfortunately the market is not cooperating.  I did read some opinions this week that seem to indicate the decline might be over!

 

I would like to chat with you sometime, when is a good time for me to call?
