Alberta Beef Producers Daily Report:

Alberta direct cattle sales last week saw light trade develop with weighted average steer and heifer prices closing the week at 154.50 and 153.75 respectively. Prices are 2.00 higher than the previous week. In terms of fed cattle prices, the market continues to impress. At one point many were thinking summer fed cattle would be sold with large losses, however cattle that are being sold right now are close to breakeven levels. Looking at the non-fed market butcher cows traded 0.50 higher through commercial auction facilities last week.
