Market Report

Cuero Livestock Market Report on January 23, 2015 Receipts 477

Had 53 cows and 9 bulls. The packer market appeared to hold at the levels of last few weeks. Very short supply due to the weather so no real test of market.

The calf market in line with what has been going on all week was lower in about every class. The board continues to be off putting pressure on stock operators as well as the feeder market to be lower. Thin calves continue to sell as high as ever but everything else was $3-5 lower with some areas as much as $7-9 lower. The stock market and other factors like a stronger dollar and port problems on west coast have hurt the export market as well as large competing and cheaper supplies of pork and chicken.

Cuero Livestock Market Report on January 16, 2015 Receipts 1,128

Had 119 cows and 10 bulls. The packer market maintained the gains from last week as numbers continue to be low and demand strong.

The calf market in line with what has been going on all week was lower in about every class. The board has been off all week as well as a significant decline in December. Thin calves continue to sell as high as ever but everything else was $3-5 lower with some areas as much as $7-9 lower. The stock market and other factors like a stronger dollar and larger than normal carryover contributed to the overall lower picture. Large competing and cheaper supplies of pork and chicken are weighing in on consumers spending.
