CUERO

Aug. 2

Receipts: 1,951

Had 233 cows and 15 bulls. The packer market was much higher making it the third straight week of higher prices. Packers are caught up on processing and demand is increasing while numbers are holding steady.

The calf market was really good across the board as all classes continued the upward trend that started two weeks ago. A lot of buyer interest in all classes of calves. Grass conditions out west are the best they have been in years. This is a strong driver of today's market. Most classes are up at least $1 to $3 over the last week's substantial gains.
