CUERO

Oct. 11

Cattle on hand: 1,481

Had 128 cows and 21 bulls. The packer market was a little stronger across the board. Stronger demand and continued low numbers coming to market makes for higher prices.

The calf market continued this week with the same steady trends we have been seeing. The mid-to-heavy weight steers were a solid $1 to $2 higher. Thinner heifers and the plainer type calves were once again discounted, showing to be $1 to $2 off. Overall, a good solid market.
