Cuero Livestock Market Report on January 18, 2018

Receipts 594

There were 88 cows and 4 bulls today. The packer market was $4-$5/cwt higher on the better quality cows and bulls. Number are low across the country accelerating the rise in prices that come as spring nears.

The calf market was higher by a few dollars per cwt across the board with some individuals up as much as $5-$6/cwt. Short supply coupled with strong demand and time running out on winter grazing has fueled this market.
