April 30

Cattle on hand: 871

Had 201 cows and 15 bulls Friday. The packer market was much stronger over last week. This market is holding up well as seasonal demand is strong and numbers have settled back. Top bulls were $4 higher and top cows were up $8.

The calf market was a lot better. It definitely was not cheaper as most of the No. 1 qualities were a dollar or more better. Beneficial rain today has helped spirits.
