This past Friday was a weird one for me. This is about the first year since about the year 2000 that I haven’t had a son playing football and boy do I miss it. Good Luck to all the area teams playing! I’m sure it won’t be long and we’ll be talking about harvest. Harvest times means weaning time. Don’t forget to get those calves green tag vaccinated if possible. The difference between vaccinated and non-vaccinated could be sizable. We need every dollar we can get and you’ll usually see a very nice return on investment!

Bred Female/Pairs Aug 9th:
We had an excellent run of bred cows, bred hfrs, and pairs on our special Tues, Aug 9th. With pasture conditions in most spots very good for this time of year, several producers were interested in adding some inventory. Fall Bred Cows topped at 1800.00. Young Pairs topped at $2075. We really appreciate all of the support and offered right at 500 head.

  Like I’ve always said we love the cow business! Thank you again. We have cow special on August 30th
