HI folks! Al is well in the market! Feeder cattle were steady. We're calling the butcher cow market off by a nickel. Good pairs are in good demand, while older pairs are worth split price. Considering all things, if you're looking for something for grass, you might want to take a look at pairs or even late calving cows. Then on the other hand if we don't get some moisture soon, the grass or market may come down to where they need another look. Have a great week.
