Cattle prices across Saskatchewan were moving down during July.
Provincial livestock economist Brad Marceniuk says feeder steer prices declined on average 17 dollars per hundredweight during July.
He says the largest price declines were in the 500 to 600 pound weight category.
He says feeder heifer prices were also down on average 18 dollars.
He says prices were pushed down by weaker cattle markets across North America.
He adds the dry summer has forced some cattle to market because of poor pastures.
Marceniuk says slaughter cow prices were also down 7 dollars per hundredweight for the month.
The price of D1, D2 slaughter cows averaged 102 dollars while D3 cows averaged 89.50 per hundredweight.
Fed cattle prices are down 8 dollars 31 cents per hundredweight.
