"That's what a person has to do — not run out of feed and money," he said. "Plan ahead if you can market your cattle at a fair price before you're broke and out of feed."--------spoken like a man who knows what he is doing, and who deserves to stay in business. Too many cowboys out there trying to overplay their hand today, in order to go broke tomorrow and look for help. And to edinawater.......I'd make a correction to your statement: most of the state's farmers are VERY happy with the weather. As the story reports, we're looking at a record or near record crop in all but a select area. The third of your universal truths are that only the farmers unhappy with the weather will make the news....
