@  Vol : (28 April 2015 - 05:16 AM) Yep, thats it stack.
@  stack em up : (27 April 2015 - 09:26 PM) I know where Carbondale is! My wife's best college friend lives in Marion, not far from Carbondale
@  Vol : (27 April 2015 - 08:54 PM) I was just South of Carbondale near Cobden haybaler.
@  haybaler101 : (27 April 2015 - 08:51 PM) What part of S IL were you in Vol?
@  Shetland She... : (27 April 2015 - 06:10 AM) 44º and cloudy here in srn NH. Should remain cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and a high of 53.
@  Vol : (27 April 2015 - 05:27 AM) Up in Southern Illinois looking at a really good looking farm to whitetail hunt this fall. Met the landowner last summer and is a really fine fella. Lots of deer, good cover and bedding areas, mostly corn will be planted in the crop fields this spring and it has many food plot areas. Believe I got lucky. Heading back to Tennessee later this morning after another look see.
@  jturbo10 : (26 April 2015 - 09:44 PM) Getting back to the ranch in East Texas on Tues...hi on Weds will be 59 with lows in 40s and it has been raining the whole time I was gone. Simply crazy wx. Just ate at the best Texas BBQ joint, Cooper's in LLano. Ribs were average but the brisket and sausage were awesome. Will get some more tomorrow to take back to the home place. Saw some corn planted in East Texas around Buffalo. It is very dry here in the Llano area. They will need some serious rain to catch up. Paid $3.89 a gallon in Lajitas but most places close to I-10 was round $259-2.79.
@  Grateful11 : (26 April 2015 - 08:48 PM) Crazy weather for late April, in the 40's most of the day, misty and foggy. It did finally make it to 55 for a short while late in the afternoon. I built fire in the insert after church.
@  stack em up : (26 April 2015 - 08:34 PM) Planted 146 acres of corn today. Not bad for a 12R30 with 2 bushel boxes. Boss is taking me to Dairy Queen for a hot fudge sundae! Yay for me!
@  deadmoose : (26 April 2015 - 08:26 PM) Mosquitoes hatched today.
@  bbos2 : (26 April 2015 - 07:22 PM) june 2016 1.43 live cattle. thats still over 2000.00 gross
@  Lostin55 : (26 April 2015 - 06:35 PM) Heifers have been 10 to 20 cents back of steers in Billings, Mt where we typically sell.
@  hillside hay : (26 April 2015 - 06:17 PM) got my duals.missing some clamps between picking bidding on and loading up.
@  hillside hay : (26 April 2015 - 06:15 PM) all calves are headed for beef in my area. bull, heifer , dairy can't blame 'em where the prices are
@  PaMike : (26 April 2015 - 06:03 PM) There were a bunch of all black steers that sold, but it sure looked like they had holstein in them. If I had a dairy I think I might consider using an angus bull and shipping the calves. Better money is selling "beef" than trying to sell dairy heifers..esp where milk prices are headed.
@  PaMike : (26 April 2015 - 06:01 PM) I didnt pay real close to the heifers selling but they are discounted a LOT compared to steers. I was thinking it used to be about $.20/lb between heifers and steers. Now its more like $.40
@  Lostin55 : (26 April 2015 - 02:33 PM) That is a great question. My wife wants to keep all of the heifers and I would rather ship them out. We will see who had the better idea. They are all in the pasture
@  PaMike : (26 April 2015 - 01:56 PM) i dont know. It will take me a year + to get them up to sale weight. Where will the market be in a year?
@  bbos2 : (26 April 2015 - 01:26 PM) i think you will do well on those calves PaMike
@  PaMike : (26 April 2015 - 10:38 AM) Wife askes "are we going to lose money on these?" I just shrugged my shoulders..
