WINTER 2023 NEWS
STATE OF THE COUNTRY— The 2022 midterms are over with the Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives and the Democrats winning the Senate. Divided government is good which will limit far left policies harmful to agriculture particular and the country in general. The stock market is acting as though inflation has peaked and is starting to climb again. Dead cat bounce??Interest rates, energy costs and and higher unemployment could lead us into a mild to moderate recession in 2023. My strategy has always been to buy things on sale(recession) but have enough resave to weather the storm. Recessions ,just like droughts, will pass and life will go on as it has for centuries.
STATE OF THE HERD—We had a record 44 heifer calves in 2022—- 13 pasture bred, 12 from artificial insemination and 19 from embryo transfer. We sold a total of 52 cows/calves in public sales and private treaty. We are using Reprologix in Stillwater Ok for our AI/IVF work in combination with Amanda Sears at Paragon for the embryo transfers. We value our partnerships with Scott Pace and Wayne Manning on PCC Cactus Jack and Blue Moon GLR.They are high quality breeders that are a pleasure to work with.
