A GOOD RUN OF HIGH QUALITY LAMBS TO DAY. THE MARKET ISN'T AS KEEN AS IT WAS A WHILE BACK BUT STILL COMPETITIVE. THE GOAT MARKET- WE WERE SHORT ON NUMBERS THERE BUT THE MARKET IS QUITE PASSIVE. SMALL, YOUNG GOATS ARE A GOOD BUY AT PRESENT. LOTS OF FEEDERS ARE NOT SET UP FOR YOUNG GOATS GOING INTO THE WINTER SO CAN'T USE THEM. THE HOG MARKET- - WELL, IT IS WHAT IT IS!! CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! THE ONLY PIGS TODAY THAT BROUGHT DECENT MONEY WERE AROUND THE 200 POUNDS. WE HAD 500 POUND SOWS BRING FROM $30- 75.00 PER HEAD!!! BOARS - USE THEM FOR COYOTE BAIT. A GOOD COYOTE IS WORTH $150. I'M TOLD. THE LAMB MARKET SHOULD PICK UP IN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO WHILE THE GOAT MARKET WILL BE A LITTLE DULL FOR NEXT 2-3 MONTHS. THE NEXT SALE GOES NOVEMBER 6 @ 11 AM. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU HERE. HAPPY HARVESTING!!
