CUERO

Oct. 18

Cattle on hand: 2,085

Had 245 cows and 25 bulls. The packer market was down about $4. Usual seasonal slump as culling is going on across the country resulting in big jump in numbers coming to market.

The calf market this week has run into some health issues with the extreme weather shifts resulting in a more hesitant buying attitude. Result is mid-weight calves are off $3 to $4 from tops of last week. Heavier calves appear to not be as affected but are still off somewhat from previous week. Large difference between weaned and unweaned calves according to trade news.
