Our market was higher this week on all calves and packer cows. Each week cattle go up $2 to $5. We had a lot of calves this week that were dried out and some of them were weaned. This makes a lot of difference in price. Some weaned calves brought .10-.15/lb more than unweaned calves. One of the packer cows brought $1.40/lb and is as far as we know, the highest cow that has ever been sold at the Hamilton Commission Company and the highest our auctioneer has ever sold. I say this every week, don’t let this market get by without selling something! If you have cattle to sell, give us a call!
