MARKET COMMENTARY:

What a temperature change on Sunday I do love Fall Football weather. I think I’m kind of like a fat steer, 50-60 degrees in the day 40 degrees at night is about perfect. The only problem is as of late it appears, I’m gaining about as good as one too!! If any of you would like to put an extra few pounds call me up and I’ll discuss rations with you. I am very excited to get a chance to go to a college football game this fall. Several calves are getting vaccinated right now. We sure recommend the green tag program. Most buyers are preferring a modified live series of shots. Visit with your vet to see if that works for your program.
