Texas feeder cattle sales direct to feedlots were weak to $5 lower in relatively light trade. Oklahoma City was steady to $2 lower on feeder cattle and steady to $3 higher on calves. Fed cattle cash prices were down by less than 50 cents per cwt from the previous week following continued declines in beef values. Cotton cash prices were higher on increased end-user purchases, an encouraging export report and uncertainty about 2012 acreage.
