We had a great night in Earling for the parish auction. Near 45 thousand rose. It's an honor to help these parishes keep those buildings looking so beautiful. How about the markets? Cattle continue to smoke along with prices at levels that are continually surprising many people. Numbers are significantly short. Demand is fantastic and a weak dollar making exports so appealing. We hope and pray somehow world leaders can get things figured out and bring peace back into the process!

Fed Cattle/Weigh Cows Tues, July 15th:
With the board turning back higher fat cattle were sure better. A summer rally is very encouraging! We sure could use more fat cattle and weigh cows to satisfy demand! Our weigh cow auction was a little stronger on Tuesday. Burgers on the grill are still about as good as it gets! We won't run out of cows but we might run short of cows to kill? You wanna see fats get high wait till they need them for the burger!!
