Well we're coming into the grass. It's really on the brink of exploding. I'm hoping next week it comes on hard. We've had about a week of dry days but today we got another 2.5" of rain. Things are back to muddy again. We didn't make it through the winter unscathed. We lost a great cow, SDR Van Altha. This cow was smoking, 80"ttt at 3 years 3 months. She got a horn stuck in the mud and ended up flipped over with a broken neck. How in the world that happens, we'll never know. We did talk to a man who said he watched two cows fight one time, and that happened right in front of him. Was it a fight? Did she slip? We just don't know.
We got back from the Legacy Sale. It was a tough time for many. The winter has certainly gotten some people down. The upside is there are some great cattle out there to purchase. We sold two, one for $3,000 and one for $2,800. The $3,000 cow we paid $6,000 for and the $2,800 cow we paid $4,500 for. That's just how it works, just because we bought them for $X doesn't mean they're going to be worth that. We also picked up two cows, giving less for them than I thought they were worth. So it works out evenly. Swap stock, now is a good time to buy.
We'll see you down the road...
