CUERO

July 19

Receipts: 910

Had 97 cows and 17 bulls. The packer market reversed directions and recovered all of last week's losses. Numbers dropped thanks to rains, and demand stayed strong, so a better market resulted.

The calf market was much stronger as runs dropped with the receipt of much needed rains in the area. This coupled with good crop reports on corn added a lot of life across the board on calves. Only weakness was in the plainer type calves. Overall calf prices are $4 to $8 higher than last week.
