AUSTIN -- For the week ending Aug. 16, feeder cattle prices quoted by Texas auctions were mostly steady to $12 lower per hundredweight (cwt), with a few steady to $5 higher on a portion of their offerings. Texas direct feeder cattle sales were $3 to $10 lower. Fed cattle cash prices were nearly $5 lower per cwt on a very light trade volume.

Cotton prices were lower after the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) production forecast and projected end of year stocks came in higher than expected. The resulting stocks-to-use ratio is the highest in 7 years.

Corn and grain sorghum prices were higher after USDA production and stocks data came in at or below expectations. Even so, weather conditions still favor a large crop, with corn production expected to reach a record high 14.0 billion bushels.

•Feeder steers, $211.54/cwt

•Fed cattle, $154.57/cwt
