South Dakota Weekly Auction Summary � For the Week Ending Oct 6, 2018

Receipts: 25,206       Last Week 18,194       Last Year 25,070             

Results of:  Ft. Pierre, Herreid, Hub City, Mitchell, Mobridge, Philip,
Sioux Falls Regional, and St. Onge

   Compared to last week:  Steer calves mostly steady, heifer calves
steady to 2.00 lower.  Yearling steers and heifers steady to 4.00 higher.
Moderate to good demand for calves, very good demand for yearlings.  
Wet and cooler than normal weather for most of the week, except at
midweek where temps spiked to the 80s and then quickly fell to the 30s
within a matter of hours.  This volatile weather combined with sloppy,
muddy pen conditions is a recipe for sick calves.  Cattle feeders are
wanting to buy calves but they are very selective because of this.
Calves that aren�t fully preconditioned are discounted pretty heavily
at times.  There is a lot of interest in buying yearlings, steers
especially as they can be fed to much heavier weights than the heifers.
Farmer feeders are trying to get their crop harvested between rains and
don�t have the time necessary to devote to starting calves on feed.  But
interest is still high in buying calves, as evidenced by the prices they
are selling for.  The supply of yearlings is pretty tight, especially
those right off grass, which is making the competition extremely fierce.
Outgoing fed cattle are selling for roughly 1600.00 per head but an
incoming yearling steer will cost 1500.00.  The low cost of feed is
really driving the feeder cattle market.  Farmer feeders would rather
gamble on feeding their corn instead of delivering it to town for
3.00 per bushel.  Many more calves expected in town next week as the
fall marketing season has begun.  Slaughter cows 2.00 to 6.00 lower,
bulls 2.00 lower.
