Sioux Falls sheep sales report

The Sioux Falls sheep and goat auction, Sioux Falls, S.D., reported receipts of 447 head March 3, compared to 488 head last week and 940 head last year, according to the USDA-South Dakota Department of Agriculture Market News, Sioux Falls, S.D.

Compared to last week, too few slaughter lambs offered to allow a good comparison with last week. Good demand seen for light weight slaughter lambs and for feeding lambs, moderate demand for slaughter ewes. No major packers in attendance today as supplies very limited, most of the supply of slaughter lambs were hair sheep and a few lambs that still need some feed to finish them. No recent comparison available for feeder lambs, too few slaughter ewes to make an accurate comparison. Receipts included about 24% slaughter lambs; 35% slaughter ewes; balance bucks.
