You should be happy. I've been so busy, I hadn't looked at the market in months. Checking local prices now.

We weaned and sold this year's calf crop a little early due to the current higher prices and we were pleasantly shocked.

Farmers are always surprised when they don't lose money. :) lol

I've considered it myself. Is it worth the effort then?
For less than $20 in vet fees and supplies per head it yielded me $150/ head or so more than I had anticipated had I sold on a normal Wednesday. I switched to following the GLA program years ago and have topped the normal Wednesday sale but this was the first time I hauled them to the feeder special. It was well worth the effort in my opinion!
