We saw a "spike" in prices about 2 weeks ago when oats and wheat starting looking good, but with no rain now even that is looking bad. A lot of producers around here had to sell because the tanks (water) were dry, and most say they'll restock in the spring, if we get rain. Most are predicting young cows and replacements will be high starting in April

I've also got some 5+ weights that need to go to market, but I'm going to hold out at least until after Jan 1st.

I will have nothing to sell in '07. I've got one steer and everything else is being retained for breeding stock. The only profit I will see next year will be from hay sales.
