I drove across a big chunk of northern North Dakota recently and saw a lot of good-looking cattle. Fall pastures weren’t exactly abundant, but the cattle still had grass to eat.
Many cattle producers elsewhere in the Upper Midwest aren’t so unfortunate. Drought has wrecked their pastures and forced them to sell at least some of their animals. I grew up on a cow-calf operation. I’ve owned cattle of my own. I know what it’s like to be short on pasture.
If you’re one of the area livestock producers forced to sell animals this summer or fall, drop me a line.
