CUERO

Sept. 6

Receipts: 1,852

Had 216 cows and 11 bulls. The packer market was steady with past 4 weeks running. Numbers are up but demand is sufficient to hold at present price levels.

The calf market was a little weaker with plainer types being off $1 to $3. Bigger heifers steady with last week. Bigger steers and bull calves were actually stronger by $1 to $3. This left the lighter end of all calves (500 and under) being off $1 to $3. This had been the trend all week.
