BEFORE I START, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE PLAINER CATTLE OR CRIPPLES OR ORNAMENTAL CATTLE ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE QUOTES. NOT MANY CATTLE TODAY- TOO MUCH MUD AND DEPRESSED PRODUCERS OVER THE MARKETS! ACTUALLY, OUR MARKET WAS PRETTY GOOD COMPARED TO THE LAST FEW WEEKS. NOT MANY LIGHT CATTLE BUT THE GRASSER FOLKS WERE HERE TODAY TO START FILLING UP. MID AND HEAVY WEIGHTS ARE STILL DEPRESSED IN ANTICIPATION OF THE SUMMER BUTCHER MARKET WHICH IS LOOKING A LITTLE BLEAK. COWS AND BULLS WERE QUITE ACTIVE WITH SOME HIGHER QUOTES ACHIEVED. NO BREDS AND ONLY A FEW C/C PAIRS- TOO FEW TO QUOTE. ALL IN ALL- IF WE HAD ANOTHER 1000 OR SO HEAD, I COULD SAY WE HAD A GOOD SALE. VOLUMES ARE DOWN AND THE MARKET ISN'T BAD BAD. MAYBE SELL BEFORE THE ONSLAUGHT OF HELD CATTLE- MAYBE. GIVE US A CALL FOR UP TO DATE MARKETS. LOTS OF FELLAS LOOKING FOR TOP QUALITY REPLACEMENT OPEN HEIFERS- NONE TODAY. ON ANOTHER NOTE- I'VE MENTIONED THIS BEFORE BUT IT REALLY IS A SHAME THE WAY OUR WAR VETERANS- MEN AND WOMEN - ARE BEING TREATED. NOT ENOUGH TO LIVE ON. NO MEDICAL (PHYSICAL NOR MENTAL) HELP AVAILABLE SO MANY ARE HOMELESS AND SUFFERING FROM PTSD AND MORE. HOW DO YOU THINK THEY FEEL WHEN THEY SEE THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS BEING SPENT ON IMMIGRANTS GETTING THEM SETTLED AND FEELING AT HOME. MAYBE THEY SHOULD GO FIGHT FOR ISSIS AND THEN COME BACK- GET A CHEQUE FOR $10 MILLION AND LIVE ON EASY STREET. HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
