CUERO

Sept. 6

Cattle on hand: 1,526

Had 103 cows and 17 bulls. The packer market continues to be strong as numbers continue to be low while demand is holding well.

The calf market remains under a lot of down pressure on the plainer or in between types of calves. The better end calves were lower but only by $2 to $3 but the rest were off as much as $4 to $6. Mostly on plainer types of calves and 600 pound plus bull calves. Declining live fat cattle prices as well as seasonally large numbers and continued concerns on packing capacity continue to weigh on the market. Overall uncertainty and frustration are flooding the marketplace. Good news is that the market is very active at these levels as plenty of buyers with orders to fill at these prices.
