Some places around may have got a tad too much rain this week. Here locally it was around 4 inches and was most welcome. Should really help the beans and fall pastures. As always lot of calves being vaccinated right now. Our recommendation has never changed. The green tag remains the very best option. Please visit with your veterinarian and do what’s best for you.

Fed Cattle/Weigh Cows  Tues, August 15th:
We had a light run of fed cattle & weigh cows. Fed cattle were $1-2 lower continuing there slide downwards. Weigh cows were basically steady. I’m no expert on how cutout values are established, however, they have lost significant value in the past couple of months. Hopefully cutout values will strengthen up and maybe we can stop this slide. I’m guessing we’ll see some seasonal downward pressure on weigh cows for some time.
