We gathered the broken mouth cows on Saturday. Shipped them on Sunday. They were processed on Monday. The checks came on Thursday. The plant has a rate they pay depending on carcass weight and grade. It runs from $1.49 to $1.30. On 32 cows I had 20 at the $1.49, 11 at $1.48, and 1 at $1.40. I love it when a plan comes together. These cows paid the original purchase price and a good portion of the feed. There wont be a lot of dollars against the calves when we sell them. There are still a few up in the hills that avoided the cowboys on the first sweep. I talked to one of the cowboys yesterday evening. He rode it again. He caught 5 pairs (none of mine). Said that he saw 6 more pairs (some were mine) but he was by himself and couldn't get them handled. This is a pretty steep nasty piece of ground with a lot of junipers for cows to get behind. They will ride it again next week.

I see from the report out of Vale it dropped 5 cents last week and another 5 cents this week.. Those few odd ball cows that missed the first gather aren't going to do as well as the the ones we shipped.
