CUERO

Feb. 21

Receipts: 1,416

Had 310 cows and 13 bulls. The packer market was steady to a little lower as the run-up in prices was due for a correction. The market is still very strong. More and more cows are coming in in a weak condition as the winter is taking its toll.

The calf market was again very solid as grass demand is very strong. Some of the heifer classes were as much as $3 higher while most of the steers were mixed compared to last week's all-time record highs.
