CUERO

Nov. 8

Receipts: 1,860

Had 215 cows and 11 bulls. The packer market was stronger mainly because of competition from at least five different cow buyers. As a result, another $2 was added to last week's levels.

The calf market was much higher as much as $5 to $10 on better classes of all calves. A lot of steers are setting new highs, as this sale may break the all-time high average for all calves that was set three weeks ago. Almost a runaway market where everything is selling well seems to describe today's market.
