East Texas Ag News: This week’s cattle and hay numbers

EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - Here are the latest numbers for cattle and hay producers.

According to the East Texas Livestock Market Report, the pre-holiday market figures show the market is steady to high for select weight classes.

This week’s market shows active buyer interest on all the front end quality feeder calves.

The East Texas Livestock Board closed on a positive note as feedlots around the area began to dry out and warmer temperatures are encouraging feeder buyers.

Most classes of hay traded steady except for ground alfalfa. That sold $5 lower because it’s competing with cheaper rations.

The USDA weekly Texas hay report noted that trade activity and demand are moderate as the new year kicks off.
