Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers in Texas sold mostly $2 to $5 higher. Trade was active on good demand. Spring has officially begun and the local pastures are in good shape due to recent rains. Slaughter cows and bulls $2 to $3 lower. Trade fairly active. Demand fairly good. All hay classes sold fully steady as most hay has been contracted. Hay is only trickling out of the barns this time of year as the wait for new crop is in full swing. In the Texas High Plains grain markets the bulk of bids were 2 to 6 cents higher on grain sorghum; 2 cents lower on wheat; mostly 2 to 4 cents higher on corn.
