Cuero Livestock Market Report on August 19, 2016

Receipts 649

Today we had 58 cows and 9 bulls. Packer market was steady with last week. Such an even shorter supply than last few weeks, it is hard to assess the market but buyers reported a fully steady market. The calf market was a little weaker on the lighter and midweight calves while the bigger steers were holding steady. The cattle futures board has been off to mixed all week and the trade is waiting to see what the trend will be. Most think it will stay close to current levels and maybe build into the fall/early winter. Today it looks like most classes under the heavier steers are off $2-$4/cwt. after 3 straight weeks of higher prices an adjustment is not surprising.
