East Texas Ag News: Calf prices down this week

EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - The price for calves is down this week compared to recent weeks.

According to the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Center in Overton, most of the market is down compared to recent weeks.

The average price for steer, between five and six-hundred pounds, ended at about $160 for November.

That’s down $5 from the month before. Heavier feeder steer, that weigh more than 7 hundred pounds, dropped $12 compared to last year’s numbers.

Prices are getting pushed up due to more calves and feeders hitting the market and some higher feed prices.
