Herreid Livestock Auction owner Kent Fjeldheim says the cattle market is hot right now. Sales for grass cattle have started and demand has been strong. “A lot of these 900 pound steers are up against $2,250-to-$2,300,” said Fjeldheim. “Cattle may be little lighter than anticipated because of the heat and fly situation we had in June.” Where will be the top of the market? “We’re at historical highs now, so I don’t know how much upward potential the market will get, I don’t know how much more steam feeder cattle can pick up.”
