Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — July 12

Receipts 100. Unfortunately, the market was softer compared to the sale we had June 28.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — July 18

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1211 head including: 17 bulls, 156 cows, 43 calves, 138 Longhorns, 212 stocker heifers, 246 stocker bulls/steers, 107 feeder heifers, 292 feeder bulls/steers. Average prices $702, July 11 $730. A comparison to July 11 local market is meaningless because Decatur had a good number of weaned calves and yearlings – July 18 mostly unweaned calves and very few true yearlings. Nationally, the market on feeders was steady to $1.50 higher with calves trending lower. The forecast for triple digit temperature has put a damper on the market. However, the feedback from buyers was that the local market was higher than anticipated, especially for the better quality calves. 80% of stocker steers were 4-5 weights with prices $2-6 higher than July 11, reflecting a good offering of calves weaned 33 days with respiratory vaccinations. The closest thing to dried out weaned calves offered. As for breds and pairs, not much to choose from.
