Remember what prices did after the last mad cow episode (2003 I think)?

Me and you both. Do you cattlemen think they will be that high again? I personally don't see it but would love to be wrong.

Never say "never" but I'd love to see 5 weights around $160.

They are, just wait and see what your bred heifers bring. You've figured out the when and where to market TT.

Around here you'd have lost $0.25 just because they were bulls. I know it's not like that everywhere.

Sold today in Staunton Va. Had 10 light weight heifers. These were mainly off first calf heifers that were already 7 mos bred so we pulled them 3 weeks ago. They will be calving back at less than 11 months.
7 @ 380 lbs 1.26 = 475.20 each.
3 @ 476 lbs 1.11 = 529.10.
We do not creep feed and they were by an easy calving bull and they weighed less than 70 lbs at birth. Not the best but not too bad.
Most all heifers that were in the 4wts were bringing 1.05 to 1.15 ; 5wts were 1.00 to 1.10.

Steers were: 3wts 1.30 to 1.50
4wts 1.15 to 1.30
5wts 1.20 to 1.40
6 and 7wts up to 1.30
several big pens of 8wts....60 @ 829 1.19;
59 @ 849 1.25;
58 @ 861 1.23.50.
Bulls were usually about .20-.25 less than the steers.

YES, I guarantee it! Records were made to be broken. Even Babe Ruth's record was broken.
I may not live to see it, but the record highs of cattle prices will be broken again one day.

Didn't look at it like that but very good point. Guess the only question is when it will occur.
