Cattle on hand: 996

Had 148 cows and 12 bulls Friday. The packer market was steady with last week’s strong market. This market is holding up well as seasonal demand is strong and numbers have settled back.

The calf market was consistent with last week’s higher levels. Even the plainer types are selling well. That in turn has overall averages higher. Almost every class of calves registered new highs. Good rains of last week have made a difference giving stability to the overall market.
