Federal Holiday Impacts on June 20th

Mon, 20 Jun 2022 08:11:56 CDT

Federal Holiday Impacts on June 20th Juneteenth is a combination of the words June and nineteenth.- This year marks the second year Juneteenth will be observed as a federal holiday. June 19 commemorates the day in 1865 when enslaved people in Texas were told by Union Army Gen. Gordon Granger that they had been liberated.

With June 19th falling on a Sunday- that makes June 20th as the official holiday this year.

Texas has actually recognized this date as a holiday since 1980. With it now being a Federal holiday- that means Federal Government offices- including USDA- are closed. That also means no mail service- Banks are also closed- the equity and ag markets are also closed and effectively taking a three day weekend.

One regular report that we feature from USDA in this email is the Crop Progress report that comes out on Mondays- it will be a day later this week so we will have details of it Wednesday morning.

You might call to confirm whether a business is observing the holiday or not before you make a trip to town.

Our Monday auction markets are open for business- and when that happens- USDA market news reporters will normally cover those markets We have details below as we normally do on Monday of the Oklahoma National Stockyards numbers for today- they expect about 6,5000 head to be sold on this June 20th.
