We spayed a bunch of smaller heifers, and keeping the lighter steers for grass cattle. The cull market seems soft. Not sure if the number of dairy cows being slaughtered has tapered off. Maybe they slipped in some more Water Buffalo from India and Australia. :wink:Big Muddy rancher said:From what I gleaned out of that I had better keep my light hfrs and tail end strs for a while. The feed yards may be hungry for feeders after the lots dry up.
Didn't really get any indication what the Non fed market is doing. I have some culls to sell.
