Gainesville Friday

Gainesville, TX — March 27

(Special) Receipts at Gainesville Livestock Market, Inc.: 1088. The market was higher on the calves despite the massive loses on the futures.

The feeder cattle is still just steady the heavy feeders are the ones taking the price discounts. The way the futures are they have most of the big corporate yards so far behind on buying the feeder cattle because they use the futures to protect themselves on them when they buy them they’re just so far behind on the can’t get much bought.

Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — March 27

(F-S) Hay trades are steady in all regions. Cattle and grain markets showed some signs of life, but hay is still being traded on an as needed basis.

Hay demand in South Texas remains very good with prices staying firm as the regions continues to deal with shortening hay supplies.
