EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - We’re looking into cattle prices from the East Texas Livestock report out of Crockett.

Compared to last week, all feeder steers and heifers averages ended between one and three dollars higher. Buyer aggression and demand remained strong on the current mixed quality of feeder calves.

Meantime, slaughter cows finished firm and slaughter bulls ended two dollars higher.
