CUERO

Date: Sept. 7

Receipts: 1,497

Had 127 cows and 13 bulls. This market was a little stronger as packers are needing cows and bulls but the runs have not increased as much. So it is strictly a supply-driven market. Demand for any quality replacement cows is high.

The calf market was much higher than any recent weeks. Average prices are running over $8/cwt over last week. The heifer replacement market continues to place a $10-$20 premium over feeder heifers. Even fleshy-over fat calves are stronger albeit not as much as the other classes. There is a strong demand in all classes for as buyers refer to it as no 'holes' in the market. The largest increase was seen in the 450-600 pound range of heifers. Again another strong week for all classes of calves.
