AUSTIN -- For the week ending Jan. 4, feeder cattle prices reported by Texas auctions were mostly steady to $4 higher per hundredweight (cwt) compared to pre-holiday sales. Texas direct feeder cattle sales were firm to $1 higher. The Oklahoma City National Stockyards were closed for the New Year’s holiday. Fed cattle cash prices were $1 higher per cwt and beef prices were higher. Cotton, grain sorghum, wheat, and corn prices were lower compared to pre-holiday levels.

As for futures markets, feeder cattle, fed cattle, and lumber were higher, but cotton, wheat, and corn were lower. Parts of South and East Texas recorded a half-inch or more of rain during the week with the heaviest accumulations along the Upper Coast and in the southeastern corner of the state.

It is scheduled to resume on Feb. 19.
