Survey Result

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2016

Not surprising but it's a data point to keep in mind if you're ever in a tabulation room and the subject of whether to post results or wait and let people be surprised during the award ceremony comes up...

Survey - Posting Event Results Online Before Awards

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2016

When I was in high school I, along with everybody else from our 4-H district, wasn’t able to compete in 4-H livestock judging because our district held their contest the same date as the state FFA CDE’s in College Station.  I’m fairly certain it was intentional because the leadership knew about the conflict but kept scheduling the event on the same date.

There was one year though when we were able to go to district.  We were sitting around for three hours waiting on the award ceremony and starting to get bored.  One of our team members, now a prominent realtor, claimed he found the results.  I’m not sure where he got them but it took all of the anticipation out of the situation.

Fast forward twenty years to me deciding whether to wait around for awards for my own kids or go home.  That anticipation and excitement are counterbalanced by my desire to get the kids home so I can get some peace.

That’s the long way of saying there are pros and cons to posting results online immediately and ruining the suspense as well as holding them back until the award ceremony.

While it’s in no way unique to livestock judging (I’m going to use the results of this for events that don’t have a thing to do with ag) it’s something that comes up each weekend at a judging contest between the time that the contest is done and the two hours it takes to straighten out your kid’s wrecked scantrons so they’ll scan.

If you don’t attend judging contests, no worries.

But if you do, which do you prefer?

Keyword Searches

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 07, 2016

I don't look at our keyword searches all that much any more


It's not because I don't dare.  It's because Google hides 90% of the keyword info that sends users to sites now and it's basically useless.

That leaves a small portion of traffic that is actually analyzed and keyword stats are virtually useless at this point.

However, our latest 8th most popular term made me chuckle a bit, in part because we're like #6 or 7 for the term...

About all of those show steer reality TV shows...

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2016

Don't call them, they'll call you.

Don't know what I'm talking about?  Over the past decade there have been no less than three different attempts at making a reality TV series or documentary about show steers.

Most Texas steer people know about them because they’ve filmed at several prominent shows over the years including Houston and the TJLA Camp Show.  Unfortunately, they never got the go ahead to actually make it to at television screen.

It's not that ag isn't interesting.

They're not even afraid of doing a stock show based reality TV show/documentary.

It's just that chickens are apparently more interesting...


Vintage Angus Bull Sale Averages

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2016

It's one of the first big name Angus bull sales of the fall sale season is and their sale is today.  It ought to be a relatively good measure of what the impact of the crash in cattle prices will have on the bull market.


Their sale is the first week of September which put it solidly in the dip in 2015 but feeder cattle were still at $2.00/lb rather than the $1.70 they were four months later.



Average Steer Prices August 2015 vs 2016

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2016

The average prices of all steers sold online this year vs last year is still down a little over 4%.


That's mainly for those southern boys, will that hold for the midwest sales?

Take the 80 steers that sold in sales that were held in both 2015 and 2016.  What was the difference?

2015 Average - $3,198*

2016 Average - $2,989

*removed one $19,000 steer that dramatically skewed the 2015 average.
