CUERO

Aug. 31

Receipts: 927

Had 74 cows and 8 bulls. Again, there were not many cows and bulls on hand. The market was essentially the same as prior weeks. Just a slow period before the fall runs of culls start exists.

The calf market looked like it regained the ground some classes lost last week. Replacement market for heifers makes those 10 to 20 cents per pound higher than others. The steer market for those over 550 pounds was about $1 higher. Market very active on all classes under 450 pound but such numbers are low as most calves are weighing more than that. Very active and strong market throughout. Only discounts are on calves that are too fleshy or fat.
