Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — May 19

Receipts. Slaughter levels look to increase to over 500,000 for the first time since the Covid-19 added its complications. This coupled with some live cash prices up to $120 should offer some support to the futures market. However, there is still a backlog of finished cattle in the feedyards and carcass weights are pushing 40# heavier than last year’s cattle. Warmer weather will be on us soon, affecting gain and performance on an already stressed market. Many experts believe we are stuck in this current rut with cash prices until next Spring.
Steers: No. 1, 200-300 lbs. $150-160; 300-400 lbs. $135-150; 400-500 lbs. $125-140; 500-600 lbs. $110-130; 600-700 lbs. $105-120; 700 lbs. & up $95-110.

Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — May 22

(F-S) Hay trades are mostly steady in all regions. Texas’ hay season has been a mixed bag for producers with results heavily dependent on Mother Nature and timing, said Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service experts. According to Vanessa Corriher-Olson, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension forage specialist conditions in Central and East Texas have been good. Overton said, most producers have made their first cutting to clear off cool season grasses for warm season forages. However, rain has caught many producers working between storms to try and get hay put up right. The spring has been atypical in most regions with cooler than normal nighttime temperatures slowing hay growth. As a result, tonnages have been lighter than normal for the majority of the state delayed to closer to the first of June instead of the end of May.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — May 25

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 649 head including: 20 bulls, 173 cows, 45 calves, 66 Longhorns, 108 stocker heifers, 124 stocker bulls/steers, 33 feeder heifers, 80 feeder steers. Widespread rain made it hard for some folks to get cattle out to bring to town, so we experienced a lighter than normal run for Memorial Day. Because of all the rain, lightweight calves were a tough sale. Lots of bull calves on hand versus steers with prices reflecting that fact. 5-6 weight heifers were steady to $2 cheaper. Young to mid age bred cows and pairs still in demand. Packer prices $4-6/cwt cheaper on cows; not many high yield bulls to test the market.
