Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — July 28

Receipts 160. Improved demand, especially on packer cows/bulls, was refreshing to see. At least short term, packing houses are running low on inventory for meat in the grind and were much more aggressive on their bidding. Now looks to be a good time to cull any cows that you might have been holding onto with hotter, drier weather ahead. Looking ahead to August 11th we have some good sets of weaned calves coming, mainly 5 & 6 weights. They will be #1 feeder steers and heifers with some good replacement heifers to be offered as well. Also coming the same day will be a dispersal sale with a good assortment of mostly angus-based cows from baby tooth to running age.

Gainesville Friday

Gainesville, TX — July 31

(Special) Receipts at Gainesville Livestock Market, Inc.: 1061. The market was steady on most classes. The much needed rain slowed number up a bit but helped the calf market as well as the packer cows. The front worked calves had good demand. Lots of good weaned calves. The ones with condition had very good demand on all sizes. The futures are trying to keep on a upward trend that’s finally giving some hope to the stocker calf buyers. The feeder cattle was steady and maybe $1-2 higher on the thinner fleshed steers weighing 600-700 lbs. Packer cow market was plenty good again it looks like a good time to cash in some of the old cows, which they’re still plenty of. The stock cow market is steady just very limited numbers of young cows still.
