Hall and Hall Affiliate Superior Livestock Auction held its “Big Horn Classic” video beef cattle sale in Sheridan, Wyoming August 17-20, 2015. Hall and Hall property managers and brokers in attendance included, Mike Fraley (Buffalo, WY), Randy Shelton and Jerome Chvilicek (Billings, MT) and Dave Johnson (Bozeman, MT).
“Prices were slightly off from last year, but sellers, especially feeder calf producers, are still reaping the benefits from an overall strong cattle market,” said Fraley
Over 168,000 head of calves, feeder cattle and breeding stock were offered. Broadcast live from the Sheridan Holiday Inn, the auction had producers from 30 states consign 31% steer calves 0-595 lbs.; 18% heifer calves 375-595 lbs.; 33% feeder steers 525-1050 lbs.; 13% feeder heifers 525-960 lbs. and 5% breeding stock. Cattle sold on contract to deliver immediately through the end of March 2016.
“This sale is most likely the second best payday these producers have ever had,” said Superior Livestock representative, Tony Schiffer.
