CUERO

Jan. 18

Receipts: 1,398

Had 138 cows and 11 bulls. The packer market lost what it gained two weeks ago dropping an average of $2/cwt. Most due to a lower live cattle market and increased marketings.

The calf market was mixed as calves over 500 pounds were off $3 to $5/cwt. while lighter calves were stronger to steady with last week's runaway market. A lot of interest from all buyers on all classes. Definitely no holes in the market. Adverse news in the panhandle over a plant closing hurt the fat market and consequently the heavier end of the calf market.
