Texas Cash Market recap, June 9
AUSTIN -- For the week ending June 9, feeder cattle prices at the Texas auctions covered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Market News were mostly steady to $3 higher per hundredweight (cwt). The Texas direct feeder cattle trade was steady to $3 higher. The Oklahoma City auction was mostly steady. Fed cattle cash prices were nearly $1 higher compared to the previous week, while beef prices were lower with Select-grade offerings posting the most decline. Cotton prices pushed higher at the end of the week as a weaker dollar and supportive export sales offset improved prospects for the U.S. crop and ample world supplies.
