I'm in enough disbelief of the drop from $2.00 to $1.75 or less on the rail to stop making predictions. It might be time to buy soon though and feed for the April Fat market?[/quote]


Truth!

It used to be conventionally thought that you didn't place steins without a market position - usually an actual contract, not a board position. Seems like you need an exit strategy to place

With corn down to around $3.30, calf prices down...........seems like a good year to retain ownership?
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I agree. My suspicion is you can find plenty of lots to custom feed as well.
