Had 179 cows and 11 bulls. The packer market continued to be steady and in some cases it seemed a little higher. Seasonal runs continue to hold this market back.

The calf market was much stronger with some of the lighter calves as much as $10/cwt or more higher. All other classes were at least $1 to $3 /cwt higher. Good wheat pastures are stimulating the demand. As usual the replacement heifer market is a solid $10 to $15/cwt higher than the feeder heifers.
