Fort Pierre Livestock Auction owner Bryan Hanson says the grass cattle are moving through the sale barn at a good rate and the market is competitive. “The majority of the feeder cattle is just coming off grass with a few that have been backgrounded.” The feeder cattle run is still a couple of weeks out for weaned calves. If current prices are any indication, Hanson has high hopes for the feeder run. “It looks to me like the cow/calf operator is going to get a little money in their pocket for the first time in several years.”
