Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — June 13

Receipts 235. Every year as we approach summer, we see fewer weaned calves/yearlings and more bawling type calves coming straight off the cow. These bawling calves mean more stress and health risk for buyers, and increased health risk means more medicine and death loss. The hot and dry weather also means decreased performance and weight gain. With that being said, there is a bigger separation in price between calves in each weight category depending on whether or not they are weaned. June 13 market followed the trend as feeder steers and heifers were mostly steady while stockers were $5 lower. Keep in mind, Hamilton will not have a sale on July 4th, so that only leaves one more sale before the holiday. The futures market has slipped in early week trading, both in feeder cattle and live cattle, so sooner may be better than later to market any calves.

Superior Livestock
Auction's Corn Belt Classic

Council Bluffs, Iowa — June 14 & 15

Council Bluffs, Iowa: Superior Livestock Auction kicked off their summer sales tour in Council Bluffs, Iowa with their Corn Belt Classic broadcast live from the Ameristar Hotel. Cattle producers offered 72,500 head of calves, yearlings and breeding stock from 21 states for this auction. The bulk of trade occurred in the North Central region with cattle selling on contracts to deliver immediately through the end of February 2018. There was much anticipation for this auction as all industry eyes were watching to see where the bar for fall delivery calves would be set. Once again Superior’s reputation, buyer base and value added programs did not disappoint; as many are seeing lower cattle futures those producers with Superior that are part of a value added program are seeing a $12-16 premium compared to those who are not.
Yearling steers were $3-7 lower and yearling heifers were $4-7 lower from Superior’s June 1st Video Auction. Weaned steer calves (regions 3/4/5/6) were $3-6 lower and weaned heifer calves (region 3/4/5/6) were steady to $4 lower. On comparable recent auction sales feeder steers sold steady to $8 higher and feeder heifers sold $3-5 higher according to USDA’s market reports. Region 1 & 2 calves were an impressive $10-15 higher than on the Corn Belt Classic in 2016.

Decatur Monday

Decatur, TX — June 19

(Special) Receipts at Decatur Livestock Market were 1087 head including: 19 bulls, 176 cows, 27 calves, 137 Longhorns, 181 stocker heifers, 234 stocker bulls/steers, 96 feeder heifers, 217 feeder steers. Average prices $720, June 12 $720. A year ago $658. USDA quoted the regional market on feeders as $1-4 lower with moderate demand and the calf market trending lower as the futures market continued the downward movement that started 2 weeks ago. The order buyers are singing the blues as their buying parameters are more restrictive. Locally Decatur had $3-6 gains on 6-7 weight heifers and 7-8 weight steers. Pairs were $10-60 higher with packer cows steady to $3 higher and bulls $1-2 higher. Most of their producers from the northern counties had smiles on their face after seeing .8-1.5 inches of rain. Decatur had enough to settle the dust and cool the temperatures.
