Cattle industry leader Corbitt Wall, host of the FEEDER FLASH at NationalBeefWire.com gives an update on drought conditions across Texas. In his words, the effects of this drought combined with economic factors (fuel and fertilizer prices) are "unbelievable" with 3 mile line of trailers for the dropoff line at Emory Texas sale barn. The sale barn received such a surplus that they were auctioning off cattle through 5am the next morning. This sale barn was 30 miles south of me. My local sale barn was packed and I was an eyewitness to these unbelievable lines.. It is real.
Thanks to Bridgette for the forward.
