The number of cattle in feedlots in Nebraska and nationwide shrank last month, so beef prices are likely to remain high.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says there were 2.08 million cattle in Nebraska feedlots on Aug. 1. That's 7 percent lower than last year.

Nationally, there were 10 million cattle in feedlots on Aug. 1. That figure was 6 percent lower than 2012.

The USDA figures are for feedlots with capacity of 1,000 or more.
