Had 157 cows and 17 bulls. Once again the packer market continues to remain strong this far into the market year. Numbers are low and demand strong. Top packer bull was $2 higher than last week’s top bull.

The calf market was mixed with No. 1 good young steers steady. Crossbred bull calves were off $2 to $3 under 500 pounds. Otherwise most classes were off $1 to $2.

Age is hurting bigger heifers and bull calves as well resulting in an overall lower market as drought concerns are beginning to weigh on the market.
