There were 144 cows and 26 bulls today. The packer market was once again much higher as is such this time of the year. Low numbers and strong demand equals higher prices.

The calf market was solid across the board with new highs in several classes. The lower quality calves were much higher while the better calves were $1-3/ cwt higher. Calves are carrying a lot of 'condition' making them very attractive.
