MARKETS

Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — April 10

Receipts 130. Although the market is still sticky on some classes of heavier cattle, the downward plunge looks to be steady for now. The frustrating part of today's market for stocker and cow/calf is that prices have fallen for some time, but beef has not followed suit in the retail market. Fed prices are selling for $10/cwt cheaper than last year while box prices are selling for almost $10/cwt higher. The beef processors are experiencing very healthy profit margins right now.
