MARKETS

Hamilton Tuesday

Hamilton, TX — October 10

Receipts. The outlook for winter wheat/oats has really changed in the last two weeks. With the recent rain, pasture land and grain fields all the sudden look to be in good shape for fall/winter grazing. This has helped the market on lighter calves as stronger demand has helped improve prices. However, as cold fronts start to come down, the temperature swing between the highs of the afternoons and the lows of the mornings will be hard on these calves as they go through the weaning process. As that happens, money will almost certainly be pulled back on calves. Yearling type cattle are still trading steady on strong demand and packer cows/bulls again sold steady. For now, the market is holding so the next week or two should offer strong demand for any calves that are ready to bring to market.
