Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — January 10

Receipts 292. The futures market has been pretty sluggish. After the market was looking for a direction to go, the optimism won out with fats and feeders up close to the limit at day end. The packers buying calves out of the feedlot seem to be wanting to forward contract cattle on the February and April board which suggests even more that they think this market may get stronger as we approach Spring. Hamilton will have some weaned calves coming January 31st. If you have some weaned calves you would like to consign or if you have cattle to sell, give Hamilton a call.
