The Stratton sales barn held another successful cattle sale on Saturday.
Despite selling only 546 animals, the Rainy River Cattlemen’s Association still grossed $594,566.62, which is a great average across the board.
Due to the lack of feed last spring, there were fewer people feeding back grounding cattle this spring. As well, since the weather has been pretty darn decent these past couple of weeks, everyone is trying to make hay and harvest grain.
Many producers told us they still had plenty of grass and they were just too busy to get their cattle in.
