Light end of the heifers we put in the feedlot last fall and 180 calves I bought in March to add a little weight and value to selling tomorrow. I haven't seen them since late March. The truckers said they look good. We'll see what morning brings.

We have 9 cull cows at the sale too.

Ken

Most are light grassers Ken, there are about 40 that will be over 800 lbs. If someone isn't there with an idea of breeding heifers they will likely go straight to feed.

Most gained quite well. Enough in the bunch that were plain or didn’t gain what we were expecting to take a bit of shine off the cheque but we did fine regardless.

We also took in the Provincial Cattlemens’s Association AGM. Little tired after the weekend but will post more on the sale in a day or two.
