Start Date: 4/10/2018 -  
Western and southernmost parts of South Texas experienced short to very short soil moisture levels. Pasture and rangeland were improving after recent rain, but some forages did not respond much to the moisture. Feed supplementation and water hauling was occurring in some areas. Local beef cattle markets continued to see high volumes, while prices on feeder cattle fell. The Bryan-College Station Eagle (Texas), April 10, 2018
