THECOLD WEATHER TOOK ITS TOLL TODAY SO WE WERE DOWN IN THE VOLUMES. THE MARKET WAS A LITTLE EDGY MEANING IT WAS OFF A TOUCH. WITH THE HAM AND TURKEY SEASON FAST APPROACHING, I SUPPOSE WE SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED IT. REMEMBER IN THE QUOTES, WE DO NOT QUOTE ORNAMENTAL TYPES, YEARLING LAMBS, SICK OR CRIPPLED. YEAR OLD LAMBS SOLD IN THE 1.10-1.30 - A LITTLE MORE THAN EWES. GOOD QUALITY LAMBS MET GOOD ACTION- THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. KEEP IN MIND THAT WHEN YOU SELL OFF FARM, YOU SELL TO ONE BIDDER. THEY DO NOT BUY OFF THE FARM FOR THEIR HEALTH, THEY ARE BUYING UNDER THE MARKET TO MAKE A PROFIT. JUST SAYIN'! WE SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR IN PROVIDING THE FACILITY AND THE ADVERTISING TO BRING TOGETHER ALL THE BUYERS I.E. PROCESSORS AND FEEDLOT OPERATORS AS WELL AS LOCAL PRODUCERS TO OUR RING SO THAT YOU GET THE MOST FOR YOUR SHEEP GOATS AND PIGS. NEXT SALE GOES ON DECEMBER 5 @ 11 AM. THIS WILL BE THE LAST SHEEP, GOAT AND HOG SALE OF 2017! HAVE A GREAT 2 WEEKS OR UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN!
