No sale due to Easter Holiday.

CUERO

April 5

Receipts: 1,305

Had 233 cows and 24 bulls. The packer market was a little stronger across the board. Local rains and rains up the country should slow receipts down helping the market.

The calf market was steady to a little stronger in some classes as compared to two weeks ago. There is a lot of interest resulting in a strong market. Calves below 450 pounds were as much as $5 to $6 cwt higher due to moisture across the country and corn planting intentions being record high implying lower costs of grain this fall.
