Cattle on hand: 943

There were 133 cows and 15 bulls. The packer market continues to be strong this as numbers are low and demand good.

The calf market was under a lot of down pressure on the plainer or in between types of calves. The better end of the calves were holding up well being off only $1-$2 but rest were off as much as $5/cwt especially bull calves. Keep in mind that $1/cwt is less than 1% of prices over $100/cwt. Declining live cattle prices as well as seasonally larger numbers and continued concerns on packing capacity have all weighed on the market.
