Beef Prices & Random Ramblings

by @ Saturday, August 20th, 2011. Filed under Cows, Farm Life

Beef prices are up. Last I read, the futures are showing 1.10-1.20 this fall and a continued climb to 1.20-1.30 next fall (that is the price per pound, on the hoof). Prices were up last year but ours only brought .70-.80. We have nice beef calves, I just think technology is taking over the sale […]

Failure to Communicate

by @ Friday, August 19th, 2011. Filed under Cows

I actually wrote this a week and a half ago now but didn’t get it posted. So references to time are relative. We actually have a few extra heifers to sell so a few weeks ago I put an ad up on craigslist for the heifers and what bull calves we had at the time. […]

Farm Photos

I kept playing it periodically until it finally wouldn’t install on the computer anymore. Even now […]

Once again I started this one and didn’t get it posted. The fair was the end of July. Fair season is starting up. Friday night we took Sami out to the Triune-Halleck fire hall. They have a small fair to benefit the VFD every year. It’s nothing too big or exciting, but it’s still fun […]

Speaking of Fairs

by @ Friday, August 19th, 2011. Filed under Kids

Last Saturday we went to the Mon county fair. I have to say, I really expected more. I’m not sure why -I don’t think there’s a less rural county than Mon in all of WV. But still, when this is your entire livestock area? Still, Sami got to see the pigs and she petted a […]
