If my parts come in today I should start cutting again on Sunday evening. We have a 50% chance of rain Sunday morning. That will wind up the spring cuttings. Summer hay fields should be ready the first week in June.
Mike: Did you get a flyer on the hay day comming up the last Saturday in May? It starts about 9:00 am with speekers till lunch then bailing demos in the afternoon. If you still want to bring that stud bull I will make sure we have a pin for him.

Are you putting bulls in the North Al. or the Auburn test this year? I have no planes to test any bulls this year. I do have some for Uniontown and the EPD sale.
Alabama wrote:Sorry to hear about the Auburn test. I have heard talk of shuting it down for several years now. I have not heard anything about the Angus breeders pulling out. I just don't have a bull that will do well enough to make me a profit in the test sale. Auburn must find a way to reduce cost to test or bring in buyers that will pay what the bulls are worth.
Uniontown has always made me the most on my bulls.
The Tifton test over in Georgia sounds good to me though. Do you have a contact person or number that you can pass on to me? Do you know what it cost to test a bull in Tifton? What was the average sale price?
