Cuero Livestock Market Report on November 17, 2017

NO SALE NEXT WEEK ---HAPPY THANKSGIVING---

Receipts 2,761

There were 241 cows and 18 bulls today. The packer market was steady with types of cows and bulls on hand. Overall quality was poor as ranches are cleaning up for the winter. There were a lot of thin as well as older cows which lowered the overall quality available.

The calf market was solid across all classes being at least even to plus on everything. Huge run as it is fall compounded by no significant rainfall since Hurrican Harvey at the end of August.

Cuero Livestock Market Report on November 10, 2017

Receipts 2,471

There were 189 cows and 21 bulls today. The packer market was once again stronger by a good $3-$4/cwt on the better types of cows. Good demand fueled by strength in the live cattle market continues to drive prices up for all proteins.

The calf market was once again a little stronger. Live cattle continue to sell at or near the tops from last week lending credibility to the big rise that occured last week. Lighter weight calves are showing the largest increase. There are not that many light calves this time of the year while the demand is high for those types to go out on oats and winter wheat. Strong market continues!!
