Cash cattle sales seen quiet

12/10/2012 @ 8:29am

 Cash cattle markets across the Plains and western corn belt are expected to be quiet throughout the day following Friday's sales. Prices were weaker Friday while volume of sales varied. In Texas, only slightly over 1K head were reported while feedyards in Kansas sold around 9K-10K, and prices in both areas were at $1.24/pound, down from $1.26 and 1.25, respectively, previous week. In Nebraska, sales on Friday were estimated near 35K, mostly from $1.96-$1.97 dressed with a few to a regional at $1.98. Wholesale beef prices fell Friday on 150 loads sold.
