CUERO

Nov. 2

Receipts: 1,565

Had 157 cows and 17 bulls. The packer market continued to be steady with last few weeks in line with the seasonal trend. A lower tone was noticed but not a significant amount.

The calf market was somewhat lower across the board. It was a very active market. Most comments were along the lines that this week was more of a correction to the past 3 weeks of escalating calf prices. Lighter weights are steady with good demand, just not many available. Most ranges were $2 to $3/cwt cheaper. Still a good solid market with no holes. As usual the replacement heifer market continues to hold a $10-$20 premium over feeders.
