A FEW MORE CATTLE TODAY- JUST OVER THE 900. THE MARKET WAS VERY GOOD ON THE FEEDER CATTLE- ON ALL WEIGHTS. QUALITY SEEMS TO BE EVERYTHING SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR HERD BULL/S IS A "HERD IMPROVER" IF YOU HAVE COWS THAT MILK, THE BULL CAN ALMOST DO THE REST. A QUALITY HERD BULL IS VITAL TO MAKING MONEY IN THE COW BUSINESS. PULLING THE BULL AFTER 9 WEEKS (3 CYCLES) WILL GIVE YOUR CALF CROP MORE CONSISTENCY AND UNIFORMITY. KILL COWS TODAY ARE STILL IN THE TANK WITH MOST COWS FROM .75-.83! ON ANOTHER NOTE...With all the immigrants coming in -legal and illegal, you would think that the Canadian Government would make sure Canadian citizens would have been taken care of first. Well, here is something to ponder. When our pretty boy Prime Minister was elected, 375 million dollars was put into an account and ear marked for our Veterans. Great! However, it has not been touched! Nothing paid out to our veterans but the tally is rising into the billions of dollars that these new immigrants are costing. What leader of a civilized nation would treat it own people this way?? Only one- Trudeau!!! And then Ottawa can't imagine why the Canadian people are mad! He better keep putting money into Bombardier so he has a job after the next election. That would really be something to behold- Justin with a real job!!! Have a great week!
