Sheep/Goat
Dairy Sale

Going in to today's auction there were no surprises about prices or numbers. Sheep & Goats being "seasonal breeders" makes numbers much smaller in December thru April.


The Dairy Business is nearly beyond description.  Each month we think we've hit bottom in prices until the next month arrives and the prices are lower!  Is it any wonder when you consider the price of milk being paid to the producer, quotas for milk delivered, cost of operation, and average age of the Dairy Producers.  There are other ways to not work so hard and lose money.  Supply and demand dictates price, and there is small demand to add more numbers to herds so they can lose more money
