Too many people wait for mother nature to bail them out. Those who were short on feed and pasture last year were rushing pairs out this spring. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. This fall they'll be on the cover of the Ag papers with an aww shucks look on their faces and their pockets turned inside out. Inside - "30% of my cows are open, the government needs to help".Lots of trailers on the road and some panic in the pasture. It will take a lot of rain to turn this around.
Most guys waited till their pastures were short and now have started to move cattle. I leave the trailer hooked up and haul a few per week.
At least you're seeding some annuals that like the dry and giving yourself a chance while de-stocking.
