Log it, graze it or let it burn. Would you like a side of smoke with your Coronavirus? Is this smoke harming more lungs than “The Rona”? Where is the outcry over global warming as California burns AGAIN? I am sure they will blame the fires on global warming instead of admitting that restrictions on logging and grazing have led to enormous fuel loads, resulting in catastrophic wildfires. I am no scientist but I would wager a large bet this smoke is doing more damage to the environment than all the cow farts in the country.
November is drawing closer everyday and one of the most important elections this nation has ever had is right around the corner. So much is riding on November 3rd. I shudder to think what would come of this country if the radicals on the left had control. I don’t see it as two different ideologies, I see it as GOOD versus EVIL. Until the corrupt politicians and weaponized FBI went ALL IN on their attempts to take down our president, I don’t think any of us would have believed how desperate they were to keep control and what extent they would go to. What the FBI did should scare everyone to the core. If they would do that to our President, what could they do to you or me? Thank God these whack jobs are doing such a good job of exposing themselves and their crazy ANTIFA and BLM groups. Surely no American with a heart and a brain could vote for Democratic candidates that support these radical groups and their so-called “peaceful protests”. Talk to your employees, co-workers, family members and anybody you can and encourage them to vote. I hope I am wrong, but it takes a lot of Republican’s votes to offset the millions of dead people that vote Democrat by mail. That’s the only way they can win.
On the bright side, feeder cattle are selling surprisingly well. With the unemployment and overall lock-down of this country, I could easily see a MUCH lower market. Rougher type cows are already dropping into the low 50s. If we are that low this early, what will it bring in October/November when the run is on? As dry as it is, we are going to see lots of 9-10 year old bred cows come to town that normally would last 2 or 3 more years. If you have extra feed, it could create opportunity to buy $600 old cows. Pull the calf next August and hopefully get $1600 for the cow and calf combined. Looks like a better
investment than an $850 steer to me.
If you are considering selling calves off the cow this fall, I can’t stress enough how important it is to get a respiratory shot in them at least 2 WEEKS before they come to town. October is “National dead calf month” and buyers are hard to get on the phone during that time period. If you need to sell before the election, try to come as early as possible. I hope most of you can hang and rattle till the temperatures stabilize and California gets rain.
