I called David at ingalls and he said he'd feed them for me. If there's a profit in them I'll feed them. If it's a break even or less I'll buy the board. 136 delivered today was a break even.
I'd rather be a professor than a gaay bar stripper where they put Texan on the marquee.

LMAO. That reminds me of the old feeding clubs where everybody in a circle of friends or acquaintances would put in a little money to partner on cattle when times were good. Truckers, bankers, waitresses - you name it, everybody was a player. In those days, I think there were even some strippers in Amarillo that fed cattle that way - LOL.

If they're only worth $1.36 delivered, it's going to be a tough day for you. But, if you're really confident that they'll perform like you expect, don't worry about that figure and bet on your cattle to do better.

Good luck, though. It's gonna be a long day for you and we've all been there. We can't control the markets, but you did a good job with the cattle and that's all a cowboy can control.

Not bad for the way it is. Not good for the way it was. The barn did a good job keeping them from losing weight. We sold them and I never bid.

That should have made you some money, regardless. Now on to the next time, right?

Ppl laugh at us for taking cattle in early for a sale but best I can tell it pays me every time.

I think some folks sold them just in time. Choice Cutout is dropping as well as Cash Fats. Well played by whoever sold these.
