Yellow bids range between 33.5 to 36 cents per pound. Most, but not all, processors are buying.

There have been times in my 23 years of post-college cattle ranching when I felt my marketing decisions were best used as a warning to others. Kind of a “whatever I do, do the opposite” piece of marketing advice for others.
