Glad to hear y’all are gettin some rain and getting some cuts in for hay. Prices are very high for cull cows and where I’m at, cows in general are being sold for a lot. My grandma sold 3 cows and a calf for 5k, the calf went for over 1 grand, which was surprising.Cooler than normal here most of June and quite dry until the last week. Got 3.5 inches in 4 days week of 20th... then turned warmer and over .6 inch July 1st(yesterday). Gotten hot and humid the last week. Made hay in early June and yield was down a bit, but last few fields are a little better with some later growth.... Pastures are in good shape, but we are down in cow numbers a bit as we sold more heifers this spring that would have gone out to grass, because prices were so high....and culled out some cows while cull cow prices are quite high also. That will make the grass last longer so not complaining....There are quite a few places that are trying to recover from drought (like you had last year) ..... and another drought is not too far off if the rains don't continue to come and revitalize the soils.
If you have the time I see no reason to not try to show the dairy heifer... different type of class and different type of showing.... But only you know if you really want to work with her.
