There were 110 cows and 19 bulls today. Packer market was off about $3-4/cwt. Overall protein prices were much lower and this caused all sources to be cheaper. Good demand just lower levels.

The calf market however waS once again a little lower despite much lower live cattle and futures prices. Good 500-750 lb steers were holding pretty steady but lower grades and lighter calves were off $1-$3/cwt. with lower classes (#2's on down) were as much as $4-$ off. Demand is very active and good just at lower levels.

Cuero Livestock Market Report on August 11, 2017

Receipts 1,287

There were 132 cows and 23 bulls today. Once again The packer market was steady with last week's market. Numbers still low so no real test on market but what was here sold well. The highs were about $1-2/cwt higher due mostly to the quality.

The calf market however was lower by about $2-$3/cwt as the effect of the futures market made itself known. Just an over supply of calves coming in these last months of the year will bear on the market. Demand was excellent just at lower levels.
