Always be on the lookout for opportunities to do good to others! Continued strong demand on high quality cows with top cows every week lately $1,800 to $2,400. Good Jersey cows $1,100 to $1,300. Choice Holstein steers up to $.92. Good Holstein Bull calves up to $100. Hay prices lower overall this week but still $170/ bale on top quality grass squares. 38 lots of hay sold.
One of my many nieces got married Saturday. Not the nicest weather, but we had a good time together as most of my siblings from PA were also able to be there. The boys had a good week of deer hunting. I lost track of how many total, but they each got some which means there'll be some venison in my future, and I like that! We didn't have sale this week, but markets are definitely trending up on quality Dairy cattle. Most people I've talked with got over $20 a hundred for milk with some high testing Holstein herds up to $24. That just flat out makes the better cows we're selling worth more! As always, if you can't make the sale, we do order buying. Still taking consignments of top- end cows for our Holiday Select Sale on December 26th. Thank You for your business!!
That letter I got about a relative in London with 9 million dollars was all just a scam. They wanted me to send them money. Well that didn't happen! If any one ever needs high quality, engineered, wood roof trusses, call Precision Truss 715-229-9191. Another week but the same story. It's all about quality! We are now taking Consignments for our third annual Holiday Select Sale, looks like we'll have our best group yet!!
