A LITE SALE TODAY! I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE MUD SITUATION IS LIKE IN YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS BUT WE ARE HEARING LOTS OF HORROR STORIES OF PRODUCERS LOSING LOTS OF CALVES IN THE MUD, 4 WD TRACTORS GETTING STUCK IN PASTURE AND CORRALS TRYING TO GET FEED TO THE COWS. TODAY THE COW MARKET WAS BASICALLY EVEN TO LAST WEEK. MOST OF THE DECENT KILL COWS WERE IN THE 1.04- 1.06 WHEREAS THE SLAUGHTER BULLS WERE NOT QUITE AS STRONG BUT THEN THE QUALITY WAS NOT HERE TODAY.LIGHT GRASS CALVES WERE VERY STRONG BUT THE MID WEIGHTS JUST A HAIR OFF OF LAST WEEK. THE BRED MARKET HAS BEEN STYMIED A BIT WITH THE MUD AND WEATHER BUT IF/WHEN IT DRIES UP WE EXPECT THE COW CALF PAIR MARKET TO BE VERY ACTIVE. **DON'T FORGET THE OPEN SPRING BULL SALE, BRED COW AND COW CALF PAIR SALE AND OPEN REPLACEMENT HEIFER SALE SATURDAY, APRIL 29 @ 11 AM WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE NEXT SALE!
