CUERO

Date Jan. 25

Receipts: 1,180

Had 130 cows and 16 bulls. The packer market was again a little lower, in line with lower protein values. Canner and cutter packer cows were steady, as was the packer bull market.

The calf market was fully steady, selling to a strong demand. Plainer types were a little off. The lighter end of heifers (3-5 wts) were better on the best end. Not as many calves more than 600 pounds, as average weights are getting lighter. Thinner calves are selling well, making new tops in their weight class. Good, solid market with a lot of buyers.
