CUERO

March 1

Receipts: 425

Had 67 cows and 8 bulls. The packer market was stronger on all classes as a limited supply of cows and bulls has made for a highly competitive market.

The calf market was steady as much as can be seen by the small size of this sale. Lighter thin calves continue to command a premium while losses at feedlots have given an undertone to heavier weight calves. The heifer market is dominated by replacement orders and continues to be higher each week. Snows in central U.S. have given hope for grass, and this drives the demand for light calves.

Packer bulls: Heavy weights, $91-$107; lower grades, $67-$84.

Packer cows: breakers, $65-$75; boning cows, $65-$82; canners and cutters, $82-$97; light and weak, $55-$70.
