Finally a 10 day forecast that looks fantastic. Hope it treats your calving schedule well. This weekend was the big Reimann Ranch club calf cow dispersal. My oh my, first time we’ve ever had a cow bring over $100,000., much less 2 of them. Top cow fetched $180,000. Good luck to the area boys and girl’s teams competing at the state basketball tournaments in Des Moines. Congrats to the Audubon & Carroll County cattleman groups on their successful banquets this past week.
