86 degree on Saturday—Beautiful!! Blizzard on Sunday evening. UGLY!! What the heck did we do to deserve this?? We ended up with quite a bunch of valuable moisture and that’s what I’m taking away from it. We sure have lost a ton of money off our beef cutouts. Hopefully we can get that turned around and keep these fed cattle profitable. Packers did come late to the table on Friday and paid steady money. As we gear up for Spring planting I wish everyone good luck & please be safe!
