To rule the simmi's!! Lol unfortunately my old ranch is millions in the hole so it's dead.. Hopefully there is some semen still floating around, I know some white simmi semen is, but if not I'll just start over.

I see some changes have been made to the market again. Can someone explain the changes?

I would also like to know about the market changes. Also, it seems like pasture bulls are not covering cows?

I'm fairly certain market prices haven't changed for a few years, only difference is the current price

I think the highest price before had been in the 300s.

In the auctions, sales and such is where I’m most interested : it seems that now even HF cows have an amazing price tag attached to them (..but they can’t bulk breed an entire pasture right?), there is a lot of HF feeders floating around (what would be the normal price to pay for 0day HF feeders?), and HF greens... (back then greens were easy access recips, wouldn’t the high frame tag make them more expensive and thus... basically I’m now confused at what they are used for now.) I’m just confused, not bashing the current trends.

Herefold breeder seem to have opened their gates a bit, making it easier to get some of decent quality. Is there any other news about other breeds?

I've been back for about 2 months now and these are some of the changes I've noticed...

Market price has obviously jumped a ton. I don't really see this as a bad thing considering how long it could take a new ranch to start really making money. This large jump in market price appears to be one of several reasons why HF feeders are such a hot commodity now. Black HF are even higher. You will make a lot more money if your feeders are all 14.7+ and black vs 14+ Spotted Light Red.

Another thing that I've noticed is that feeding PSM seems to be a much smaller issue than before. When I left, all the big ranches were almost all exclusively feeding PSM and some even refused to purchase cattle not on PSM, claiming that 100-100-100 fed cattle were all just inflated stats. I would assume that's because there is no longer a price tag on custom rations. I'm beyond glad that we've gone away from that mentality(for the most part).
