In preparation for the the fall cattle run, there were initial concerns about a potential lack of feed base. North Dakota Stockmen’s Association Environmental Services Director Scott Ressler says those concerns have diminished. “It certainly looks like enough feed base will be gathered. In the world of feeding cattle, with weight comes the dollars. “With these markets, it will be advantageous to feed the 2018 calf crop a bit longer. Some of the calves marketed early seem to be better than last year. However, weights aren’t as good as we originally anticipated.”
