Texas Cash Market recap, July 23
AUSTIN -- For the week ending July 23, feeder cattle prices at Texas auctions were mostly $2 to $8 lower per hundredweight. Lower fed cattle and beef prices contributed to the decrease. The drought was also a factor as calves are being marketed earlier than normal because of the lack of grazing, which is increasing supplies and lowering prices.
