South Dakota Weekly Auction Summary � For the Week Ending Jan 5, 2019

Receipts: 20,226       Last Week:  No Report    Last Year 25,485             

Results of:  Ft. Pierre, Herreid, Hub City, Mitchell, and St Onge. 

   Compared to two weeks ago:  Feeder steers and heifers steady to 
5.00 lower.  Moderate to good demand for all weights of steers and
heifers on this holiday shortened week.  The losses on the CME Live
and Feeder Cattle contracts put pressure on the feeder cattle market
in the auctions.  Winter storms after Christmas, with heavy rain and
then snow and bitter cold temps and wind made for tough feeding
conditions.  Poor feedyard pen conditions also pressured the market
as wet and muddy pens make it difficult for cattle to gain efficiently.
Very large auction receipts expected next week as auction markets resume
their normal sale schedule.  Slaughter cows 5.00 to 7.00 higher, bulls
2.00 to 6.00 higher.
