Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — June 17

Some have lowered prices on large round to get them out of their barns to make room for new crop. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — June 20

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1091 head including: 29 bulls, 205 cows, 44 calves, 108 Longhorns, 182 stocker heifers, 247 stocker bulls/steers, 100 feeder heifers, 176 feeder bullls/steers. Average prices $658, June 13 $718. A year ago $1210. Several customers have inquired about why/how the commodity futures market affects prices of their calves being sold today. Perhaps this snap shot will provide some insight. Futures contracts continued to decline with December fed cattle quoted at $117/cwt and feeders at $140/cwt forcing the order buying companies to adjust prices lower to cover expense of taking a 3-5 weight calf up to 700# ready for the feedlot. In addition to normal cost of gain, the heat and humidity have to be factored in. The result today was for feeders to be $5-8 lower and calves $9-10 lower with moderate demand. Very limited supply of bred cows and pairs being offered. Packer prices $1-2 higher. Decatur will be closed June 30 – July 7. Weaned calf segment to featured on Monday, July 11.
