Yep, looks pretty fruitful if a man hedged his bet. I'm gonna wait to try them again til spring so I can supplement feed with grass. Those big boys can eat.

I tried a winter "stocker" program based on alfalfa hay. The cattle looked great but ADG was less than a lb per day.
I am trying to quit corn silage, but grazing standing corn would pencil out this winter.

My favorite Bud sell/buy example was buying fleshy calves, putting them on winter range, and making money on the trade even though the calves lost weight. :shock:

Heavier calves sold for as much or more than lighter weights the past 2 weeks here. There were steers from 1.00 to 1.50 yesterday for the 350-500 weights, all over the place. Heifers were down from the week before but some were in the 1.00 range; most were in the 85 to 95 range. Things should be a little slower for the 2 weeks of rifle season, if it follows previous patterns....
