February Female Markets Stronger

Bred heifers found average gains of $50 per head in February 2018. ( Farm Journal )

Seasonally, February female markets tend to strengthen and 2018 followed suit. Both bred females and pairs suitable to go back to the country found strong demand and higher prices. February also produced a second consecutive month with higher prices for most classes of females.

Bred females saw gains of $20 to $50 per head, though aged, bred females were mostly $20 per head lower in a light test. Bred heifers found average gains of $50 per head, which added to the $225 per head gains seen in January. Young- and middle-aged, bred cows sold $20 per head higher, which added to January’s gains of $77 per head.
Bred heifers sold during February about $300 per head higher than the same time last year, and the young- and middle-aged bred cows sold for $50 per head more than 2017.

Open heiferettes saw a modest $2 to $3 per cwt gain during February on a light test. Young and middle-aged open females $2 to $3 higher in February. The aged, open cows sold $7 per cwt higher in February. 

Prices for cow-calf pairs were stronger on the young cows with small calves, and on the aged cows with calves. Cows with small calves sold for $192 per pair more last month than during January, and about steady with last year. Cows with large calves lost $56 per pair. Aged cows with calves gained $93 per pair.

Slaughter cow prices traded $4 to $11 per cwt higher during February. Utility and commercial cows sold at $60.42 per cwt, up $4.79 per cwt. Canner and cutter cows traded at $63.17, a gain of $11.04 per cwt.

Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man.
