AUSTIN -- For the week ending Jan. 26, feeder cattle prices reported by Texas auctions were $8 lower to $8 higher per hundredweight (cwt) compared to the previous week. Texas direct feeder cattle sales were $1 to $6 lower and the Oklahoma City National Stockyards were steady to $5 lower. Lower fed cattle prices and continued high feed costs pressured the feeder market. Fed cattle cash prices were $2.50 lower per cwt and wholesale beef prices were lower as Cargill’s Jan. 17 announcement that it will idle its Plainview, Texas, cattle-processing plant continued to impact markets. Cotton prices were higher amid strong export sales and predictions of sharply lower U.S. cotton plantings in 2013. Wheat prices followed other grains lower in spite of improved exports sales and ongoing drought in U.S. winter wheat areas. Corn prices were lower due to weak export sales. However, tight domestic supplies limited the decline.

As for futures markets, feeder cattle, fed cattle, and cotton were higher, but wheat, corn, and lumber were lower. Little rain fell anywhere in the state during the week with scattered showers in a few areas totaling one-tenth of an inch or less. Crop progress and condition information are not available as the weekly U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service crop progress report has been suspended for the season. It is scheduled to resume on Feb. 19.
