North Dakota Weekly Auction Summary - For the week ending Oct 6, 2018 

Receipts: 1,129        Last Week 3,398        Last Year 4,976             

Results of:  Stockmens

   Compared to last week:  Only 1 reported auction this week, at
Stockmens in Dickinson as few cattle producers ready to sell their
spring born calves and most of the yearlings have already been
marketed.  A good market comparison not available.  More calves
expected for next week as the fall marketing season has begun.
Very good demand for yearlings, moderate to good for calves.  With
the low cost of feed there is a lot of interest in feeding cattle.
