CUERO

March 22

Receipts: 1,405

Had 340 cows and 24 bulls. The packer market was again steady to a little weaker this week due to more cows and bulls coming to market as weather conditions improved in areas north and east of local area, which resulted in much larger numbers coming to market. The large number of cows today are indicative of this heavy drought-driven market. Bred cows and good pairs sold very high.

The calf market was steady to a little better as opposed to recent weeks and has shown a lot more life. The lighter calves have recovered most of the recent losses. Some of the heavier classes were a little weaker as feedlot losses continue, which bear directly on the feeder markets. Overall it was a good solid market atmosphere.
