CUERO

April 26

Receipts: 1,618

Had 426 cows and 19 bulls. The packer market was down $2 to $3 as drought is causing a huge number of cows to be sold for lack of grass. A lot of very thin cows, but there are some out-of-state buyers looking for young, healthy cows.

The calf market recovered most of the losses from the last two weeks. Steers 500 and up were a good $2 to $3 higher while some of the lighter calves with condition were up to $5 to $6 higher, but these lighter calves were heavily discounted the last two weeks. Warmer weather in central U.S. has spurred renewed interest in the lighter calves on expectations of spring grass soon.
