It has been a difficult fall. That is an understatement!
We were dry all summer and then September came, and it rained for a month straight. Coming off three summers of drought, I had a hard time complaining about the rain. But it made it difficult to finish making hay for our cattle to eat this winter.
Many hay bales still sit in water, which has now frozen. We sell calves on Friday. The cattle market has been low and we struggled to get a decent contracted prices. So, we will end up only selling our biggest steers and backgrounding our small steers and heifers in hopes of better prices to come.
