CUERO

Jan. 10

Cattle on hand: 2,026

Had 248 cows and 47 bulls. The packer market opened the year in a strong fashion as the upward trend that started last month has continued. Very active and strong market. Tops on cows were not as high due to poor condition of cows this time of the year. Check our website, cuerols.com, for final price ranges on all classes.

The calf market opened up strong everywhere this year and today is no exception. Seeing tops up over $5 to $8 and some over $10 higher. Only exceptions are those showing too much Brahman or longhorn influence. Those classes are much behind the other classes. Strong demand as numbers available will be trailing off as the month progresses as it always does at the beginning of each year.
