OOPS.....sorry but we fresh ran Out,

That's the coming true story for the non fed harvest of cull cows and such.

 

Theres been piles of dried out cattle harvested in 2018....

Matter of Fact record cow slaughter...it's still ongoing.

 

by end of Jan of 2019 the availability of non feds in the USA is Gone.

its that simple.

 

sooooo what happens is the Normal Seasonal Up ( Jan thru Aug 2019 ) in cull cows returns.

 

Expect a memorable Up in cull cows...

 

say from bout $60 to $65cwt live to in the $130 cwt live bout Aug  2019.

 

perhaps loading some boats with older cows, pocketing i.e. short weaning their calves and selling a fat cow come Aug could work well.

Re: OOPS.....sorry but we fresh ran Out,

They tell me the same packers who kill cull cows also kill Holsteins. Any truth to that and will this help the Holstein price?

Re: OOPS.....sorry but we fresh ran Out,

Mark,

 

Thank you for recommending grazing out the sudan, and not worrying about the lack of cube consumption.  Over the last few weeks we grazed out a section of the sudan.  We are having a cold snap, so we pulled the cattle off of it for a few days, but we are planning on grazing out the rest of it when the weather warms up again.

 

Your recommendation was helpful to us.  Thank you.

A can of black spray paint would probably we more beneficial.  (No, I am not recommending actually using it.)

 

It has been about a month since Tama reported any Holsteins on their market report.  Did they stop selling Holsteins, or just decide to stop reporting the prices?

 

Edit: Spelling error.

I noticed that too. Been thinking about selling another load to Pennsylvania. Running a #12 basis off the board for whatever month you choose. Looking pretty good compared to the local market.
