We are in full swing coming off a busy winter. Thankfully we had a mild one, but the work load did not slow up by any means. We baled hay right up until New Year’s and it was a blessing not to have any frost until then. We worked our spring bred calves the first couple of weeks in January and are getting geared up for our cow working to vaccinate all of our fall calves the first week in April. The market is solid right now and in my opinion will stay that way for some time to come. We could use some rain as the water holes are slowly going down but that has been the usual for this time of year for a while. The fertilizer is getting ready to be distributed throughout our pastures and hay production for the spring will start the latter part of April. We are going to have a sale on Superior Livestock Auctions on March 23rd for our spring bred calves and they will be loaded up and hauled out west the first part of April.
