Re: Re:The "Spumkier Yet coming soon

As I said in my previous post, I have a knack for selling at the bottom of a market cycle.  At least it is just one little pen.  

 

I hope that average slaughter weights do drop some.  Earlier this month one of our best quality pens at the feedlot sold.  As usual they sold on the grid, and while we were very happy with the quality grades, we were disappointed to have several get the over 1050# carcass discount.  I was still happy that they were sold on the grid as the quality grade price increase was greater than the carcass discount.  However, it is still disappointing to know that if they had been sold sooner we would have had a better market and lower carcass weights.
