The fall run is happening in the south, if it isn’t already about over! The big push of cows has slowed down, but the selling of calves off the cows to save has sure picked up. There appears to be quite a few light weight calves coming up for sale that would normally sell in October or November!
Maybe a person should consider changing their buying habits this year! Everyone always seems to want a 475 pound weaned steer in the fall, so why not have them ready instead of looking for them when the wheat is up? Many of the calves selling are in excellent flesh condition to wean, and they certainly aren’t going to eat as much as those nice, big, fleshy 650 pound northern calves
