DUNLAP LIVESTOCK AUCTION

701 Hwy. 30 W, Dunlap, IA 51529, 712-643-5761

www.DunlapLivestock.com

SALE TIMES FOR TUESDAY, AUGUST 20TH

@ 9:00 AM FED CATTLE, FOLLOWED BY WEIGH COWS & BULLS,

FEEDER CATTLE @ 12:30 PM., THEN SPECIAL BRED COWS/PAIRS/BREEDING BULLS

The cattle news to dominate this weekend is the fi re at the Tyson foods beef plant in Garden City, Kansas. No word yet as to the extent of the damage, but we are hearing it could be closed for months, causing a signifi cant disruption to cattle movements. I read that the Garden City plant represents 6% of the overall U.S. fed cattle packing capacity! I wish I had a crystal ball but I can only imagine fed & feeder cattle prices in the short term will be negatively affected. I’ll try and let you know more as we know more. We’ve watched Tyson close plants at West Point, Ne, Emporia, Kansas and Denison, Iowa, this sure as heck won’t help!

BRED FEMALE/PAIRS, TUES, AUG 6TH: We had an excellent run of Bred Cows & Cow/Calf Pairs selling over 500 head. Pair trade was excellent. Fall calving cow demand was decent, however I think those young Breds at $1300-$1500 look like an excellent buy. Top pairs $1600-$1800. Next Cow specials on Aug 20 & Sept 10th.
