Reminder on breeding bulls—Get your bulls fertility checked now. I talked to two vets recently and 25%-50% of the bulls they have tested are no good. Turning an infertile bull out with your cows could be the dumbest management decision made all year. Doing it right at turn out time leaves too little time to shop for a replacement in case yours is no good. Anyway, by that time the best ones will be gone unless it has already happened.
Market Overview for Week Ending April 11
It was very busy productive week at Fairview Sale Barn. There was not a weak spot anywhere as everything brought good figures. The fires were burning leading to lofty figures: fats topped at $155, cows saw a $1.15 top, light feeder steers went above $2.60 with heifers at $2.45, 3-5 day old adoptive baby calves up to $425 per head, and Easter lambs topping at $2.55 per pound.
Producers raising the right kinds of animals, the type most buyers demand, are taking home checks of unheard of and unimaginable amounts. The bulk of the larger groups of cattle in this area have been sold and the peak is likely over especially with the farming season removing a lot of buyers from the sale barn seats and putting them into the tractor seats. It has been a tremendous run, but the rest of the spring will typically be bits and pieces, but prices will stay strong.
