BEEVILLE

No sale last week.

CUERO

July 12

Receipts: 2,430

Had 274 cows and 12 bulls. The packer market has been drifting lower each day as this drought continues as more and more numbers are coming to market. Increased imports have also hurt the market according to some analysts.

The calf market was mixed. Calves of good quality under 450 pounds were up $2 to $4 while No. 2 calves were $1 to $2 lower. No. 1 steers and heifers over 450 pounds were steady to strong. Plainer types and over fleshy calves were discounted $1 to $2. With large sale numbers everywhere this week, the buyers have had to be more picky in what they buy. Overall, a good strong market with lots of activity especially on the lighter end of the weights.
