Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — May 16

Receipts 259. Since May 9 the futures market has been very volatile. After falling off midweek, it was up the limit May 12 only to start off May 15-16 by losing what it had gained May 12. The progress with our trade relationship with China doesn’t appear to be strong enough to sustain our current price level, at least not until they get a deal worked out going forward. While packer cows and bulls sold on a steady market, the calves and yearlings were about $5 off from what we saw May 9. Hamilton does have a couple of herd sell outs that they will be marketing in the next couple weeks. Keep checking their website for more information and pictures of these stocker cows.
