Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction - Ft. Pierre SD
                            This Week   Last Reported   Last Year
Total Receipts:      8,309              2,632                0
Compared to last week: Much larger offering this week making a meaningful price comparison difficult. Quality was outstanding. Good demand for these long strings of light fleshed yearlings offered in full loads and multiple load lots as well as for the loads and part loads of light fleshed fall calves. As the flesh condition was so attractive on these yearlings and calves the market was very active with many buyers on the seats actively bidding. The vast majority of the fall calves were weaned 45-60 days and have simply been turned out on grass leaving them in a very attractive flesh for the cattle feeder, the market was the most active on these cattle as there are simply more options to these cattle compared to a big yearling that has to go to a finishing yard.
