Bob is pulling late nights and early mornings as spring approaches and calving season is in full swing. Cow c-sections at midnight and 3:00 a.m. will make a man tired. If he gets a live calf and healthy cow at the end he's happy.
On Saturday we loaded up the remaining 21 market lambs and took them to the livestock auction in Colfax, Iowa. They averaged 135 pounds and brought $1.38 a pound. Light lambs were bringing over $2.00 a pound for the "Easter market." Even tiny bottle lambs were selling high.
