Cuero Livestock Market Report on December 1, 2017

Receipts 2,566

There were 310 cows and 29 bulls today. The packer market was a little weaker due to the large number of packer animals hitting the market across the nation. Better conditioned cows were strong but there is a disproportionate amount of thin old cows making up the numbers coming to market making it look worse than it really is.

It has been two weeks since the last sale and the calf market is being tested across all classes due to the large seasonal numbers coming to market. Good big steers continue to bring a premium as were quality light weight steer & bull calves under 400 pounds. The better end of the heifers was up about a $1.50/cwt. It was not uncommon to see calves from 425 lbs down being over $200/cwt due to the huge demand for quality light weights to go out on wheat and oats. Overall the market is very solid on all classes of cattle.
