Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — February 7

Receipts 80. Cattle sold on a mostly steady market with some classes of heifers selling better than $10 higher. Packer cows and bulls also sold on a steady market on a light run. The overall cattle market has rebounded after January's cattle on feed report and looks to remain steady for the short term future. This market seems to be driven more by fundamentals and is going to follow the live cattle market as the fats come out of the feedyard. Boxed beef prices are holding their own, even after January 31 kill of 580K+ copared to last year's kill of 547K the same week. The competition the beef industry gets from the pork and poultry industries will be the next hurdle as we approach Spring.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — February 13

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1213 head including: 34 bulls, 251 cows, 34 calves, 96 Longhorns, 244 stocker heifers, 290 stocker bulls/steers, 111 feeder heifers, 153 feeder steers. Average prices $601, February 6 $674. A year ago $832. The regional market had $1-3 gains on comparable calves weighing 500#+ and $1-2 on feeders as compared to Feb. 6. Your local market had very few calves compared to Feb. 6 which included a high ratio of weaned calves. High prices on 2 weight steers, 4 and 6 weight heifers advanced $10/cwt so the demand was there for the better kind of market ready calves - but supply was lacking. The anticipation is that if we get the rain as forecasted that would provide a good boost to the market. Decatur’s 25th annual “Bringing in the Green” Special Replacement Sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 22.
