Charolais Feeders Selling High

Here is a note from Steve Quinton, Char-Maine Ranches at Cardston, AB.

Read about the silver Charolais steers,  awesome!!!! October 15 at Ft. Macleod Auction Shaw Ranches sold tan/white strs 729 lbs @ $1.5035.
Donahue Ranches 658 lb tan strs @ 1.565.
Snake Creek Ranch 685 lb tan hfrs @1.4550.
How is that for the Charolais Breed? Most ranchers with Charolais calves averaged over $1000 for strs and over $900 for hfrs.
Talked to the order buyers, they say they pay so much for these Charolais cause they convert and will finish in April in the high market! They were fighting over them today, and did not cut back whites cause they were white if the quality was there!
Excellent for Charolais and the cattle industry !



Silver Charcross steers topping market

Here is an excerpt from the Canadian Cattlemen’s online editorial on Oct. 11th by Jerry Klassen who is a commodity market analyst in Winnipeg. I highlighted the Silver steer section which is $1,130/head. Anyone still concerned that the silver steers won’t sell?

The weaker Canadian dollar, along with stronger beef prices and lower market-ready supplies, caused fed cattle to jump $4 per hundredweight (cwt) last week.
Alberta packers paid up to $111/cwt in a struggle to fill nearby demand. Feeder cattle prices followed suit, edging up $2-$3/cwt on average, with lighter-weight cattle up as much as $5/cwt in some instances. Charolais-cross silver age-verified steers weighing 825 pounds were quoted at $137/cwt in central Alberta. Pfizer Gold age-verified angus cross steers averaging 528 lbs. reached $161/cwt. The market is firm, with stronger demand surfacing for heavier cattle, and feedlots looking to take advantage of shortkeep replacements.
