AUSTIN -- For the week ending March 26, feeder cattle price trends at Texas auctions were very uneven with some locations as much as $5 lower per hundredweight than the previous week, and some as much as $5 higher. Fluctuating grain prices, lower fed cattle and tight supplies of feeders contributed to the unevenness. Cotton prices were higher for the week because of continued strong export sales and short supplies. Grain prices were also higher on strong exports and concerns about dry weather on the U.S. Central Plains and wet weather in the Midwest.

As for futures markets, feeder cattle, fed cattle, cotton, wheat, and corn were higher while lumber was unchanged. Little or no rainfall was recorded anywhere in the state during the week. Topsoil moisture supplies were mostly short to very short statewide and crops and pastures in most of the state need rain. The winter wheat crop was 2 percent headed and rated in mostly fair to very poor condition. Fifty-percent of the corn acreage was planted and 16 percent has emerged. Cotton was 8 percent planted, grain sorghum planting stood at 46 percent complete, and 44 percent of the state’s rice acreage was planted. Planting progress is ahead of the normal pace for most crops, but additional moisture is needed for germination and growth. Pastures were rated in mostly fair to very poor condition.

•Feeder steers, $148.38/cwt
