North Dakota Weekly Cattle Auction Summary

Archived Report

Total Run: 7,696

Market Notes

Compared to last week: Feeder steers unevenly steady, heifers 3.00 to 5.00 lower. Good demand for steers and heifers this week, however by far the best demand is for those cattle to background and make yearlings out of. The fall months of the CME Feeder Cattle contracts are at a nearly 30.00 premium to the current month. Yearling operators are wanting to capitalize on this opportunity and want to get these green, light cattle bought while they can. The continuing drought is the worst in western North Dakota where moisture continues to remain very elusive. Demand for cattle suitable for finishing yards is good but with the costs of gain as high as it is, flesh is a major factor.

Supply included: 100% Feeder Cattle (41% Steers, 59% Heifers, 0% Bulls). Feeder cattle supply over 600 lbs was 70%.
