Just keep in mind that you need to repackage your items into vacuum sealed packages or you will run into items getting freezer burnt. . . Then it is just a waste of money. But I guess your puppy dogs would love you.I am think about getting another freezer
That is a great price you bought at so be proud. Are you able to process yourself?I purchased( 2 )300 lb butcher pigs for $90 each on Tuesday.. farmer has over 400 pigs he can't sell so he put them on craigslist hoping to break even. I see at the supermarket they are still limiting meat purchases.
Did your family hog tie or just threaten? I know it is hard on you to just sit around and watch. . . You are too used to being in the middle of everything going on at your place. I am glad that you are still taking it easy and letting your body heal and rest.I just sold another heifer today. Prices are down to $.94 per pound around here. A couple weeks ago I was getting $1.24 per pound. I was planing on selling another dozen or so, but not at this price. I'll feed them through the winter and hope the prices go up by next spring, provided I can find enough hay.
Today's a big day; castrating, tagging and vaccinations. My son, SIL and hired hand are working the cattle, while all I can do is sit in a chair and watch.
Yeah it was hard to stay out of the corral and not help. Everyone kept yelling at me to stay sitting down.Did your family hog tie or just threaten?

Just listen to them and get back to work sooner, the OP is like a marathon. It will take time to recover, my back op is a year back and I still have real pains and ghost pains. But you are right Arctic, everybody keeps yelling to sit down and relax. Makes me feel like a little kid again...GPEveryone kept yelling at me to stay sitting down
Its been hard. I really wanted to get in there and show the smart ass punks (40+ year old) just how to rope a calf. They wouldn't even let me in to cut the bulls.I’m Glad your taking it easy too. Every time I have tried to rush an injury it just took longer than it would have if I had listened to my body. I don’t blame you for not selling any cattle now. At that price your probably lucky to break even with costs.
I am greatful that I can afford food as many are really struggling right now. I have noticed a huge increase in the grocery bill though. Yet after seeing all the shortages we have had in recent months I’m just happy to be able to get things.I have a feeling in stock is not going to be the problem but rather the price at the register.
