CUERO

Feb. 14

Receipts: 1,100

On Feb. 21, there will be 50 Brangus cows, most of which have calves by their sides. Those that do not will be palpated.

Had 101 cows and 20 bulls. The packer market was higher by another $2 to $4 over last week's higher prices for all the same reasons as the last four weeks with numbers being down and demand strong. Protein prices are high, further helping all forms of meat. The calf market was again very solid. In fact, this may end up being another record-breaker as there were some new highs in a lot of the classes. The bigger calves were gaining ground on the lighter calves which have been extremely high lately.
