I sold 2 beef calves yesterday. I was extremely happy with what they weighed. Both were off of 1st calf heifers, both born in February. I weaned them early and they have been on just grass for the past two months. First time I ever weaned a calf, and didn't feed it something. Weighed 565. One was white one was black. White 1.19 black 1.35. There is very little to be made on $700 calves.

Sold 4 corriente heifer that brought .69........Nothing to be made on those, but man we had fun.

Value added 600-700 calves in the sale we use most often sold at 136.00-141.00 per hundred weight this week.

What did the top end calves bring at your sale Sky?

I agree there's not much money to be made on $700 calves. We sold 724# Holsteins Wednesday, $92, 728# Angus x Holsteins $120. Over $200 more on xbreds, thankfully we only have 6 more home raised holstein steers on feed. Rest are all xbreds, I'm getting $50 for a day old bull calf picked up here at the dairy.

If cattle are selling that cheap in your area I would be figuring out how to put together a load, getting them ready to travel, and shipping them to a better market.

Steers weighing 1,050 brought $1.04 here. But a bull weighing well over 600 would take a big hit here too.
