AUSTIN -- For the week ending Aug. 2, Texas auctions quoted feeder cattle prices mostly steady to $10 higher per hundredweight (cwt). Texas direct feeder cattle sales were $4 to $7 higher. Fed cattle cash prices were near-unchanged at $162 per cwt. Wholesale beef values posted new record highs for the week, up $4 to $6 per cwt.

Corn and grain sorghum prices were lower as prospects for large U.S. crops continued to pressure the market. There were concerns about dry spots in the Corn Belt, but not enough to turn prices around. In Texas, 38 percent of the corn crop is mature, and farmers are preparing for harvest in the Southeast and South Central regions of the state. The crop is rated in mostly good to fair condition. The Texas grain sorghum harvest is 33 percent complete with the remaining crop also in mostly good to fair condition.
