South Dakota Weekly Auction Summary � For the Week Ending Dec 01, 2018

Receipts: 30,863       Last Week 5,621        Last Year 26,235             

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

   Compared to last week:  Steer calves unevenly steady, heifer calves
under 550 lbs 5.00 to 7.00 lower, over 550 lbs not well tested last week.
Yearling steers and heifers in a narrow comparison 5.00 to 10.00 higher.
Demand moderate to good for calves, with the best demand seen before the
end of the week as a very large winter storm was predicted to hit the
region.  Good demand for yearlings, interest in yearlings was spurred
along as the cash fed cattle market had advanced back above 115.00 in
many areas.  A large offering of calves, buyers remain cautious about
buying a calf that hasn�t had fall booster vaccinations.  The best demand
for a calf is a long time weaned one that is heavy enough to reach
harvest weight before the summer months. Cattle feeders resisted lower
packer bids all week until late Friday where they had to raise live bids
to 118.00 in many areas.  Slaughter cows 4.00 to 5.00 higher, instances
to 10.00 higher on Breakers, bulls 2.00 to 4.00 higher.
