The report looks a little different this week as I had to leave the office early and there were not enough sales reported yet for a accurate market report. We will talk trade numbers coming back next week.
As for the program this week we talk with Jake Miller of Culbertson Nebraska about his hair sheep operation. Miller included the hair sheep in recent years to his cattle operation as a way to diversify the livestock as he transistioned his family operation into more of a sole livestock grazing farm. The sheep have come with their own unique challenges like fencing, but Miller has found even more creative and cost effective ways to overcome these challenges. At the end of the day Miller see’s a future for his family operation with the hair sheep as a key component.
