Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction - Ft. Pierre, SD
Feeder Cattle Weighted Average Report for 02/08/2019
 
Receipts:  2,569    Two Week's ago:  5,047    Year Ago:  6,088
 
No sale last week, comparison made to two weeks ago. The 550 lbs. to 
700 lbs. steers were generally 6.00 to 8.00 higher, maybe due to the 
this weight of cattle greening up this past week?? All other 
weights and classes that can be compared would be called steady. 
Bitter cold temperatures and wind chills in the minus 40 to minus 
50 degree range in this area caused a large number of cancellations 
for todays sale. Moderate to good demand for this attractive 
offering of feeder steers and heifers for todays sale. 
Flesh condition ranged from light fleshed hay fed cattle 
to backgrounded cattle that were moderate to moderate plus for flesh 
condition. Cattle marked value added arexc  in the NHTC program.
Cattle offered today were home raised, long time weaned and
fully preconditioned. Mostly order buyers on the seats for todays 
auction that consisted of 55 percent steers, 45 percent heifers, 
with 80 percent weighing over 600 pounds. Next feeder sale will be 
Friday, Feburary 15th, expecting 7,000 to 7,500 head of high 
quality feeders, starting at 9:00am on old crop yearlings and 10:00am
