CUERO

Date June 20

Receipts: 846

Had 93 cows and nine bulls. The packer market was again stronger than last week, as receipts are low and demand good, so prices are up another $2-$3/cwt. Time to sell any cull cows or bulls.

The calf market was fully steady with last week's gains. Some classes were even better by $2-$3/cwt. There are some new highs in several classes. Favorable corn growing weather as well as improving grass conditions and a strong demand for limited numbers has pushed the calf market to another week of record all-time highs for the third week in a row.
