AUSTIN -- For the week ending Dec. 7, Texas feeder cattle auctions reported prices mostly steady compared to their previous sale, with a few as much as $10 lower per hundredweight (cwt) and some as much as $4 higher. Much of the price weakness was attributed to the winter storm that hit the state late in the week. Texas direct feeder cattle sales were mostly steady. The Oklahoma National Stockyards were $2 to $4 lower on calves; however, yearling feeder cattle numbers were not sufficient to allow for market comparison. Fed cattle cash prices were steady. Wholesale beef values were lower. Weekly beef export sales were up 22 percent from the previous week and more than double the previous four-week average. However, shipments were lower. . . .
