Re: Drought $ales

Drought equates to more corn silage in some areas. 

Feeder cattle are bringing decent money.. As are pairs etc 

Cost of gain looks to be fairly reasonable in the future.  Silage plus a government check. 

Cost of gain right now... We'll arguably bought same as fat price..  Say $120cwt .

Keep in mind most feeders put feed in at Last year's cost. 

Soo with say $4 per bu ... Heck cog pretty cheap. 

This year on... Just feed less energy and take more time 

Interesting drought ongoing. 

Keep in mind just sell corn at $6 to 7...and don't feed too.

Forget $4 corn

Just plant some winter graze and let em grow all winter on that. 

Come spring go to grass and supp it W ground ear corn or distillers or whatever energy.

Dried distillers works say 5 to 6 lbs per head per day...  They fatten right up.
