BEEVILLE

Information not available.

CUERO

Dec. 7

Receipts: 1.995

Had 221 cows and 14 bulls. The packer market was unchanged from last week's market for same reasons being that it is mostly a matter of large numbers due to time of the year and on-going drought concerns.

The calf market was much better as most classes below 600 pounds were a solid $3-$4/cwt higher. The market appears to be a lot more active this week as some calves were as much as $10-$15/cwt higher particularly in the lighter steer weights. The bigger calves were once again very strong. A good rain would help.
