BEEVILLE

No sale due to Thanksgiving Holiday.

CUERO

Nov. 30

Receipts: 2,201

Had 262 cows and 36 bulls. The packer market was a couple of dollars lower than out last sale 2 weeks ago. It is mostly a matter of large numbers due to time of the year and on-going drought concerns.

The calf market lower overall. Bigger calves still selling strong and are least affected. a lot of health problems this time of the year is making buyers critical. The demand for calves is strong despite all this. Under 500 pounds $3 to $5 lower while plainer types are off $5 to $6 as well as heavier bull calves. A good rain would help.
