** The parasites will be bad this year due to the wet weather. Be sure to deworm your animals! Prohibit works well on sheep & goats. Give them 10cc 3 days in a row.  (Note: Shake well before administering!)

With the rain came the worms! There were many weak sheep and goats dropped off here to sell today. There is absolutely NO DEMAND for sick or wormy animals! They will NOT bring very much money if they’re sold in this condition.

The prices quoted in this market report are the top of the market and range down from this according to quality, condition, and fill.

We had a steady market on 87 head. The market was more active this week. There will not be a sale next week because of July 4th, most cattle companies and their buyers take vacations the week of the 4th. On Tuesday, July, 7th we will have 70-80 head of weaned calves off of 2 ranches. This could be a good time to bring some calves to town. We usually have an extra buyer or two when we sell weaned calves. If you have cattle to sell give us a call.
