Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — April 11

Receipts 117. Spring showers again kept a lot of people from being able to gather their livestock. On a light run, cattle traded mostly steady with lighter, juicy calves being a little softer. Just as our spring rally looked to be running out of steam, China’s willingness to end the beef ban on the U.S. products helped spur a rally in the futures market. This should help U.S. beef exports have a bigger footprint in China as they rely less on Brazil to fulfill their large beef demand. Whether you are buying or selling, Hamilton Commission Company is here to serve you.
