Got a few new feeders in the last month. Colored cattle have been high enough for me. Pictured is a group I put together out of a 1000 Hd sale second week of April. They’ve taken off pretty good so far. I bought a group 2 weeks before these for an order that we’re twice the quality and consistency. Last weeks of March seemed to be a good time to get some calves in if you had the room.
Found a deal on some 280# weaned holstein calves about 150 miles from home. Hopefully can send them out a little under 1400# come April 2020.
Bigger holsteins pictured are contracted for October, they’ve really taken off the last few months. They’re kind of an oddball group put together one or two at a time, probably everyone else’s problems. Been forking them 7-8# per head of wrapped triticale bales everyday, that seems to be the magic trick on those guys.
