AUSTIN -- For the week ending Nov. 5, feeder cattle prices at selected Texas auctions were mostly $2 to $11 higher per hundredweight with the most advance on light-weaned calves. Oklahoma City was mixed, $2 lower to $5 higher, and Texas direct feeder cattle sales were mostly steady. Competition for a smaller supply of available cattle continues to support the market, although prospects for diminished winter grazing are also limiting demand. Fed cattle prices were down $1.76 from a week earlier, but remain well above this time a year ago. Wholesale beef prices were lower on Choice, but slightly higher for Select-grade. Cotton prices were lower due to weak export sales and concerns about demand.

Corn and grain sorghum were slightly higher following strong exports, increased Chinese interest and ongoing concerns about the size of the U.S. crop. Wheat declined as weak export sales offset prospects for a smaller U.S. crop in 2012.

As for futures markets, feeder cattle, fed cattle, and corn were higher, while cotton, wheat, and lumber were lower. Little rainfall was recorded anywhere in the state during the week with amounts of one-half inch or more limited to parts of South Texas, East Texas, and an area south of Wichita Falls.

Texas Cash Markets for the week ending Nov. 5:
