I sold a tiger striped steer last Wednesday. pretty joker, 600lbs. Never seen a yearling put on weight like he did and never had one that big at that age. He brought $1.15

I was well satisfied.

Dam right buddy! You did pretty good I'd say.

Thanks Brad. They were good steers, but I was still pleasantly surprised to some degree.

Calf market was considerably better than last weeks sale reflecting the upturn in the feeder cattle futures board. I did notice a real discount on bull calves 550 lbs and up ($6 to $13 per cwt). That is roughly $35 to $75+ dollars per head more for a steer. Here are some figures I pulled from recaps:
KC 65 (steers) averaged 669 lbs @ $135.63 to average $907.36 per head
Bob 60 (bull calves) averaged 663 lbs @ $122.14 to average $809.79 per head

That was $97.57 per head more for a 660+ lb steer vs a bull calf. Does it make a difference? Some buyers have steer only orders and can not and will not bid on a bull yearling.
