  • 2011 has the potential to be an exciting year for cow/calf producers. Prices for feeder steers are very high and demand will remain high because of domestic use and demand from other countries in the world. Economists have shown producers for years that cow/calf producers are under appreciated and the least paid for their investment. This has changed in the last couple of years with the reduction in size of the herds. In the short term, the prices of our feeder calves are at a high level because of the supply and demand.

  • * Log Cabin, Feb. 4, 1905 -- “Mr. John W.

Mr. Daniel put up 700 to 800 tons of fine clear ice, from six to nine inches in thickness.” (Have you seen the ice exhibit at the museum?)
