THIS PAST SATURDAY, WE WERE PRIVILEGED TO HOST THE 2ND ANNUAL SOUTHERN CLASSIC BRAHMAN SALE. MIKE MITCHELL, ONE OF OUR DIRECTORS, IS A BIG PART OF THAT SALE. WE APPRECIATE HIS HARD WORK AND INVOLVEMENT IN THIS. I WANT TO COMMEND OUR STAFF FOR THEIR WORK IN TRYING TO TAKE CARE OF SOUTHEAST MS LIVESTOCK’S CONCERNS. THE OFFICE CREW AND THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK ALL WORK HARD TO ENSURE OUR SUCCESS. 

THIS WEEK’S MARKET REPORT IS A LITTLE BIT OF A SURPRISE. KILL COWS AND BULLS WERE BOTH MARKED HIGHER. WE UNDERSTAND THERE IS A BIG BACKLOG ON GETTING CATTLE TO THE KILL PLANTS, SO HIGHER PRICES WERE A SHOCKER.

OUR NUMBERS WERE UP SLIGHTLY AT 665 HEAD. WE NEED YOUR HELP IN KEEPING OUR MARKET SUPPLIED AND WE APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU DO. THE SALE HIGHLIGHT WAS A SET OF 4 PAIR THAT BROUGHT $1,450.00 EACH. THESE CATTLE CAME FROM JARED SULLIVAN, OUT OF MOUNT OLIVE. THEY WENT BACK TO A LOCAL FARMER AND WE SHOULD SELL THEIR CALVES THIS FALL.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP AND PLEASE LET US KNOW IF WE CAN BE OF SERVICE TO YOU.

SINCERELY,

MIKE KEENE

P.S. ONE 4-YEAR-OLD BLACK HEREFORD BULL, WITH PAPERS, READY TO BE TURNED OUT, WILL BE HERE MONDAY.
