North Dakota Weekly Auction Summary - For the week ending Oct 7, 2017 

Results of:  Kist and Stockmens

Receipts: 4,976        Last Week 5,108        Last Year 2,517             

  Compared to last week:  Steer and heifer calves unevenly steady.
Yearling feeder steers and heifers not well compared.  Moderate to
good demand for calves, good demand for the much lighter offering of
yearlings.  The futures contracts were able to hold together with
some solid gains which really helped to shore up optimism for cattle
feeders.  The low corn market is really giving incentive to farmer-
feeders to feed their corn to livestock if they have the wherewithal
to do so.  Auction receipts remain larger in the Western part of the 
state where the drought has persisted longer.  Central and Eastern parts
have fared better and are able to hold on to their stock longer.  Larger
receipts of calves expected for next week.
