Going to load up and head to the auction today.
Got 1 fat heifer, 14 months old.
A fed cow about 1300 pounds.
And dropping off a fat heifer at the processor.
Wish me luck. :wave:

Didn't check the schedule, Didn't know there was a feeder auction today. Watched while a thousand or so feeders and stockers sold. Not to bad of prices. Not a lot of small stuff. Mostly say 550-800. From tops, for weight class. 1.20 and up to the heavies at about fat cattle prices, $84-$90. So, being the kill cattle sell at the end. :roll: Will wait to see what I got when the check comes on Friday. :banana:

I took 2 cows to the sale barn on wed morning, one of them born in 01 the other in 04 both really good cows just needed the room..the 01 was a pure Black angus cow (lost calf on day 2 lungs full of liquid) weight 1185 pounds brought 48.50 or 574.73$ for killer. The 04 was F-1 black baldie weight 1440 buought 52.50 per lb. or 756.00 ( lost calf the 2 day of the 15 inches of snow we got, had calf at the hay ring and probly got step on) both were very good cows that sold for killers. I have 22 cows that had 100% bred rate in 09 (spring) Sold a couple of my best because of lost calves, If I had more grass I would have kept.

That doesn't sound bad to me! It wasn't that long ago that you would be hard pressed to get over $1.00 on anything weaning age.

We've had plenty of rain here, so I'm guessing folks are buying calves to put out on grass again. Hope we get more! It's sure nice to see green grass.
