Recently, we purchased some new Angus cows. Eamon found the cows and coordinated the trucking. This is an unsettled time, as cow prices are high, along with every commodity. We are enjoying the high lamb prices, but not so much the high corn prices, which goes to feed the lambs on the feedlot, and the pregnant ewes on the Red Desert. We are recalibrating as fuel prices go up and up, in response to the unrest in the Middle East. This probably means that folks in our Oil Patch community can go back to work, but it also means that we will look at every place where we burn oil based fuel and try to conserve.
