BEEVILLE

No sale this week.

CUERO

Dec. 6

Cattle on hand: 2,384

Had 316 cows and 34 bulls. The packer market looks lower but a lot of that is because many cows and bulls are coming in poor condition and just are not worth much. The top prices were right in line with previous sale.

The calf market looks to have regained most of the losses suffered two weeks ago when the market was flooded with cattle. Plainer types continue to be discounted, while the better steers are selling at higher levels. Market is very solid on good cattle. Large receipts continue to stretch the capacity of buyers to process and ship.

Packer bulls: All weights, $62-$80.
