AUSTIN -- For the week ending Aug. 9, feeder cattle price trends reported by Texas auctions were mixed. Many locations quoted steady prices, with some $2 to $10 higher and others $2 to $5 lower per hundredweight (cwt). Texas direct feeder cattle sales were mostly $2 to $4 higher. Fed cattle cash prices were nearly $3 lower per cwt. Wholesale beef values were $3 to $5 lower than the previous week’s record highs.

Corn and grain sorghum prices were slightly higher after a modest decline in crop conditions and higher export shipments. In Texas, 63 percent of the corn crop was rated in good to excellent condition, up two points from a week ago. Both U.S. and Texas grain sorghum were rated in mostly good to fair condition, with 39 percent of the Texas crop harvested.
