South Dakota Weekly Auction Summary � For the Week Ending Oct 7, 2017

Receipts: 25,070       Last Week 29,164       Last Year 17,554             

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

   Compared to last week:  Steer and heifer calves sold unevenly steady.
Yearling feeder steers steady to 3.00 highe.  Yearling heifers weren�t
well compared as more heifers this week were offered out of backgrounding
yards while last weeks were off grass, steady to higher undertones.
Demand for calves moderate to good, yearling demand very good.  Big calf
runs in the western auction markets as the big fall runs in the western
auction markets is underway.  Not as many yearlings off grass this last
week, most out of yards, but it didn�t matter as cattle feeders want to
get some yearlings bought.  The futures market lent some support to the 
feeder market late week and helped to shore up the resolve of cattle
feeders to hang tough on their asking prices of fed cattle.  Northern
trade was 110.00, or more, by late Friday as packers had to meet the
asking prices if they were to get any cattle bought.  Boxed beef prices
were higher, which allowed the packers to keep their margins intact.
The rains that have been pretty persistent in East River, SD throughout
the last 6 weeks continued again this week.  Some calf buyers were
hesitant to buy calves as the pen conditions have gotten very muddy due
to the frequent rain fall.  Temps have been cool and when combined with
the moisture that makes for a good recipe for a sick calf.  Large auction
receipts again this next week, several auction markets are hosting feeder
cattle auctions twice a week during the month of October.  Slaughter cows
steady to 1.00 lower, bulls steady to 3.00 higher.
