The USDA May 1 on-feed report looks like this: on feed up 2%; placed in April up 11%; and marketed in April up 3%.
This year the Texas Cattle Feeders Association is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary. Last week in Amarillo, 25 of the past TCFA presidents gathered to recount where the association has been, where its at and where its headed in the future. And one of those in attendance was the legendary founder of Cactus Feeders Paul Engler.
Memorial Day falls on May 29th this year!
