Cuero Livestock Market Report on April 29, 2016

Receipts 839

Today we had 78 cows and 14 bulls. The packer market looked to be virtually identical to last week's market. Very small supply as time of year and continued wet conditions mean not a good test of the market.

The calf market was said to be improved over last week's drop. So the consensus of opinions as well as the facts support the fact that the market was steady. The downward trend appears to have been stopped. Demand was good as all buyers were present with orders to fit all the classes of calves on hand.

Cuero Livestock Market Report on April 22, 2016

Receipts 572

Today we had 75 cows and 46 bulls. The packer market looked to be steady with last week's market. Very small supply due to heavy local rains this week so not much of a test of market.

The calf market was lower as heavy rains took some of the buyers out of the market with no dry ground to go to. Light receipts due to all the rain. Overall averages were down $5-$10/cwt. A lot more discriminatory buying between steers and bull calves as well as thin calves versus over-fat calves. Fat cattle futures took a beating this week and that did not help the calf market at all.
