North Dakota Weekly Auction Summary - For the week ending Sep 9, 2017 

Receipts: 2,283        Last Week 2,068        Last Year 1,262             

  No comparisons available as this is the first this report has been
released since May 2017.  Very good demand for feeder cattle of all
weights.  Auction receipts light this week.  Cattle feeders are eager
to get yearling cattle bought and into their yards to capitalize on
the low cost of gain.  Few calves showing up in the auctions yet as
producers are trying to hang onto them as long as they can.  Hay
stockpiles are short but with silage harvest underway that will help to
add some available forage.
