Shipping Steers 2012

With Clarence on vacation and missing shipping for the first time in twenty years, Zach, Robbin and I were saddled and ready to gather the steers before 6:00 a.m., as they began filing off the irrigated pasture, and the dry feed along the road, as if an invisible rider was getting them up and started towards the corrals. Obviously not needing me horseback, the Kubota and I began scattering a few flakes of hay as most of the bunch walked into the corrals. Robbin and Zach eased the last few in and we were ready to weigh by 6:15 a.m. I ran the sprinklers in the corral Sunday afternoon to keep the dust down, but didn’t get the lane wet. We had plenty of time before we were scheduled to start weighing at 7:00 p.m. Trucks gone by 9:00 a.m., steers net 762# – Beautiful dawn, great day!!

    Hallelujah! Great day in the morning. What a shot. Don’t make this look too easy now.
