Report supplied by USDA
Fed cattle prices held mostly
steady through midsession this
week, belying the fact that dressed
beef levels moved 1.00-2.00 lower.
Demand ran generally good, as
buyers replenished depleted live
inventories. Some stability was
also afforded the market by
purchases of 1000-1100 lb. Steers
suitable for a short turn in the
feedlots. Overall finish proved
very uneven, with a fair sized level
of weighty top choice cattle,
countered by goodly numbers of
“Under Weight”, weather stressed
kinds. Cows 3.00-5.00 higher. Bulls
Estimated 5 day receipts 10800;
actuals last week 13384 and last
year 9881. Steers comprised 47 pet.

Inside every untreated silo, pit

ster that eats protein and energy,
leaving a trail of waste, nutrient loss
and musty, stale forage behind it
Now you can stop this rot with
Anchor silage moculants -Sila-Lator
2X for dry application or Silage
Inoculant 160 X for liquid Both are
proven microbiotic products that
help preserve most types of silage
—corn silage, haylage and high
moisture corn —and now baled hay
With Anchor silage moculants,
you get the fastest protection possi
ble against rot That's because they
contain a specially selected team
of beneficial bacteria, aided by tour
enzymes, featuring something
no one else has —Streptococcus

With rot under control you I
get more protein and energy
more dry matter, improved
palatabihty, less heat loss
and runoff That's proven in
leading university trials So
you can store your silage
or baled hay longer, and get
from better-quality silage
You might think that
fighting rot is a costly
battle Not true with
Anchor silage mocu
lants It's less than a
dollar a ton to treat silage And
it’s only a fraction of the cost of
acid preparations to treat baled
hay Application’s also a snap
Now’s the time to control musty,
rotten forage And nothing does it
faster than Anchor silage mocu
lants—for higher-protein, higher
energy silage and hay
