Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — November 11

Receipts 94. Hamilton's cattle market was from $5-10 higher to steady on 94 head. The lighter calves were higher while the feeder cattle were steady. Everyone is looking for replacement cattle of the same type. If you have any cows that don't fit your program, it would be a good time to bring them to market. Same goes for older calves, even broke mouth cows will bring a premium if they are at least middle bred. It could be a good time to cull and rebuy a newer model. If you have cattle to sell, give Hamilton a call.
