Sheep and Goat Auction for 02/14/2019      

Receipts:  320    Last Month:  235    Year Ago:  250

   Thursday’s sheep and goat auction had a light to moderate offering of 
mostly lambs weighing 50-80 lbs.  Lambs sold mostly 20.00-25.00 lower 
than last month’s sharply higher market.  Kid goats were lightly tested 
and traded with a lower undertone.  Demand was moderate to good with 
supply light.  Supply was near 85 percent sheep and 15 percent 
goats.  Montgomery County Livestock Auction holds the Sheep and Goat 
Auction the second Thursday of each month.  All prices per cwt unless 
noted otherwise.
