This weekend wasnt any different than any other weekend that we have here on the homestead. We work hard and rest hard. Saturday started with a trip the the local cattle auction barn. DD vet science class took a field trip to check out how it works and watch them vet check cattle. We have been to auction houses before but this one runs like a well oiled machine and was great to see the price of cattle still up. We were told that the high prices of cattle will last here in East Texas for approx another 3 years. I can gaurantee that this is all gonna affect on way or another prices at the grocery store. Slaughter cattle were bringing upwards of $2 a lb, no wonder why we cant get ground beef for under $3 a lb anymore.
Sunday brought all the honey dos that needed done. We started with mowing the lawn. We used the riding lawn mower to mow the large area but we used the small push mower with the bagger to mow the good grass and we are feeding it to the calves, goats and chickens!
