CUERO

May 31

Cattle on hand: 1,852

Had 220 cows and 49 bulls. The packer market was steady with last sale two weeks ago. There was an undertone to the prices as live cattle prices have suffered. Demand remains strong.

The calf market was a little weaker in the face of lower feeder and fat cattle markets as the industry works its way through peak supplies of calves. As in the packer market there were some signs of weakness creeping in on most all of the classes. Demand is good just at a lower level.
