CUERO

Sept. 13

Receipts: 1,496

Next week, Sept. 20, there will be 6 quarter horse fillies from HK Ranch. These will be here Thursday night for viewing.

Had 152 cows and 11 bulls. The packer market was a little weaker as seasonal runs up north of here have flooded the capacity of the packers putting them behind on processing. Time costs money, so the price was a little lower, but not much.

The calf market was a little weaker with plainer types being off $1 to $3. Some of the lighter calves were back up $1 to $2 as were some of the mid-weight steers. Demand was good but buyers were being more selective. Again, plainer type calves were sluggish across all weights.
