Charolais Calves Selling Strong in Ontario

This is an email to let you know how good Charolais cattle are selling in Ontario.  Wednesday evening, Nov. 9, we sold Charolais stockers at Talbotville Livestock Exchange.  We had a group of 17 Charolais steers.  They averaged 750 lbs and they sold for $1.65  1/2  /lb.  That is $1241 a piece.  We had a group of 19 Charolais heifers that averaged 765 lbs and they sold for $1.45/lb, which is $1109 a piece.  A group of smaller heifers sold for $1.54/lb.  That should pay for the feed for the old cow!  It sure is an exciting time to be in the cattle business.
