Bought 102 s/c and 66 h/c last Wednesday to put in a custom lot again. Prices and future markets look better than last year. Time will tell.
Have pen space reserved for 600 there. Our own h/c go there at the end of the month.

Email them to me. If they can be converted to YouTube, I can post them.

You might poop when I tell you what they were worth. Far from the market top too.

The steers weighed 489 lbs, 91 were from one contributor and 11 from another. They cost $216.25

The heifers were put together from several owners, the largest bunch was 9. They averaged 422 lbs and cost $202.15

The folks that are feeding them say they have settled in nicely. There are a couple bunches coming to the sale next Wed. that will fill the Hereford steer pen to 150.

That is what my calves went for last year, so if they go even higher this year, I am a happy guy!

I’d think most around here wish they could get what they got last year.
