Manager’s Words
We are getting to the critical point of needing some rain.  We are making good progress on getting fertilizer and spray applications made. The month of May is sure to bring many challenges. Please make sure to keep your cattle health and growth a priority. The sale prices can justify the added expense. 

Thank you for your business,
