REITER’S BLOCK SEPTEMBER 2021
It’s Getting Hot!
Wow, what a summer this has been! I know it always seems fast but this one has absolutely flown by for me and that seems to be a common theme. Just yesterday it was Derby Day and I was excited about clearing out my inbox, cleaning off my desk, and catching my breath. But I can report that NONE of those things has happened yet. In fact, in our nearly 30 years of marketing livestock, I do not recall a busier summer for us than this one. Maybe it’s the pent-up demand and energy. Maybe it’s the awesome weather that we have had in the eastern Corn Belt – it’s too bad not everyone with cows had weather like ours this year – or maybe it’s the turnaround in commodity prices that we have seen this past year. I cannot tell you which of these or other factors are making it happen, but there is certainly a buzz to the livestock landscape currently. I am pleased to report a record summer sales season for my little company. Since it started to warm up, I have been swapping premium cows in ND, IL, OH, IN, TN, AL, TX, WV, PA, NE, and VA. Sure, we normally do lots of business in those states, but not normally so much at this time of year. It’s exciting, and recent annual auctions are bearing this same theme out.
On the commodity side, feeder calf prices are blasting off with a significant portion of the load lots in recent Superior Livestock Sales, for example, bringing more than $1,000/hd (some well over) for weaned calves; some pushing, and sometimes exceeding, the $200/cwt mark. On the purebred side, there are not many August events but those that have happened have been especially strong. I am just returning from The Lone Star Elite Sale where the first bull in the ring brought $150,000, the next $120,000, and 112 lots averaged $9,952. The first four Angus sales of the season all averaged over $10,000 with one hitting nearly a $44,000 average on 75…that’s buzzing for sure! It’s hard to know exactly what happens from here, but for those of us that have been around awhile, this is a familiar refrain: rewards lie ahead for those that are prepared to reap them. There is still plenty of time to get yourself set up for success and, while you do not need much help to do so, I will be happy to lend a hand where I can if you need it. A big wave is coming and I am excited to ride it!
