Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold mostly steady to 6.00 higher. 

Calves unevenly steady throughout the week, with early-week auctions slightly lower and mid-to-late week auctions higher. 

Demand for the week was moderate to very good, with active trade especially for yearling cattle. 

Several auction barns across the Plains and Midwest are reporting higher receipts than a year ago. 

This is due to many bringing their calves to town after weaning, and earlier than usual. 

On Wednesday, Hub City Livestock in Aberdeen, South Dakota had very good demand on yearlings coming off of grass, with buyers having to be aggressive in order to take them home. 

There were a few bell-ringing sales, with 3 loads of steers weighing an average of 966 pounds selling at 161.75. 

There were also some impressive sales in the Nebraska. 

At the Ogallala Livestock Auction Market in Ogallala, Nebraska, 48 head of steers weighing 710 pounds brought 174.50 and at the Huss Platte Valley Livestock Market in Kearney, Nebraska, 45 head of heifers weighing 795 pounds sold at 152.75. 

Load lots were scarce and buyers were willing to piece together loads this week. 

On Monday, CME live and feeder cattle futures started the week off by closing in positive territory, with the exception of nearby live cattle futures. 

This continued the next two days, with Wednesday seeing significant, triple-digit gains in both the live and feeder cattle futures. 

Compared to last Friday, October live cattle futures closed 3.83 higher at 111.58 and December was 117.43, up 4.61. 

Feeder cattle futures held triple digit gains for the third week in a row. 

Compared to last Friday, September feeder cattle futures closed 3.17 higher at 153.40 and October was up 5.45 at 156.10. 

This week’s Fed Cattle Exchange (FCE) sold 636 head, which follows two weeks of light sales from the exchange. 

The cattle that were sold were for 1-9 day delivery from the Southern Plains and sold from 106.50-106.75 FOB, with a weighted average price of 106.67. 

This provided optimism to the fed cattle market, with feedlots in hopes of higher cash trade by week-end. 

Southern Plains cash cattle trade was moderate at 108.00, 2.00 higher than last week. 

In Nebraska, no trade has been established yet; however, dressed bids are higher than last week’s trading. 

On Thursday, NASS released their monthly Livestock Slaughter Report with the average weight of a dressed steer in August at 884 pounds. 

This weight was 15 pounds heavier than the previous month and 7 pounds lighter than last August. 

The average weight of a dressed heifer was 806 pounds, up 13 pounds from the previous month and 3 pounds lighter than last year. 

Year-to-date federal inspected beef production was reported at 17 million pounds, 4.9 percent higher than a year ago and cattle slaughter was 21.03 million head, 6.5 percent higher than last year. 

NASS’s Cattle on Feed was released this afternoon, with cattle on feed September 1 totaling 104 percent and cattle placed on feed in August totaling 103 percent, both above estimates. 

Fed cattle marketed in August came in at 106 percent, in line with estimates. 

Cold Storage was released from NASS this afternoon as well. 

The report stated that total red meat supplies in freezers were up 7 percent from July and down 3 percent from last year. 

Total pounds of beef in freezers were up 10 percent from the previous month but down slightly from last year. 

For pork, frozen supplies were up 4 percent from last month and down 5 percent from last year, with the stock of pork bellies up 8 percent from last month and down 40 percent from last year.

Overall, the boxed-beef market was unsettled for the week; beginning firm to higher and finishing steady to weak. 

Compared to last Friday, Choice boxed-beef closed at 191.60, up 18 cents and Select boxed-beef was up 2.88 at 188.73. 

The Choice-Select spread closed today at 2.87. 

Auction volume this week included 49 percent weighting over 600 lbs and 40 percent heifers.

Compared to last week, steers and heifers traded mostly steady to 6.00 higher. 

Demand was moderate to very good, with active trade. 

Demand has remained good for the past several weeks, as grain is readily available and at relatively cheap prices. 

On Wednesday at the Hub City Livestock Auction in Aberdeen, South Dakota, buyers had the opportunity to choose from a large supply of quality cattle. 

There were some noteworthy sales, with nearly three and a half loads of steers weighing an average of 942 pounds selling at 157.10. 

CME live and feeder cattle futures traded mixed throughout the week.  Compared to last Friday, October live cattle futures closed 43 points higher at 107.75 and December was 112.82, 3 points lower. 

Feeder cattle futures held triple digit gains from the week. 

Compared to last Friday, September futures closed 2.35 higher at 147.87 and October was 148.42, up 2.23. 

On Thursday, cash trade in Nebraska was limited on moderate demand with a few dressed sales from 167.00-168.00. 

However, there were not enough for a market trend. 

Last week in Nebraska live sales were at 105.00, with dressed sales from 165.00-168.00 on a light test. 

So far the for the week, trading has been at a standstill in the Southern Plains. 

Last week in the Southern Plains, live trades were 105.00 with a light test noted in Kansas. 

Harvest is officially in full swing, with corn harvest reported as 60 percent complete in Texas, 10 percent in Kansas and 12 percent in Missouri. 

NASS’s Crop Production Report was released on Tuesday. 

Corn production is projected at 14.2 billion bushels, with an expected average yield of 169.9 bushels per acre. 

Soybean production is estimated at 4.43 billion bushels, with an expected average yield of 49.9 bushels per acre. 

Both corn and soybean yields are slightly higher than August, but lower than last year. 

Throughout Montana, snow is falling with many mountain passes anticipating 8 inches of snow by Saturday and 12 to 18 inches expected above pass level. 

This is welcomed moisture, as the state has been engulfed in wildfires due to drought. 

Hopefully the snow can provide relief to the area, as there is currently 22 fires burning in the state, impacting over 580,000 acres. 

USDA’s monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) Report was released on Tuesday. 

U.S. beef production for 2017 saw a decrease of 140 million pounds, with production now at 26.559 billion pounds. 

Production also declined for 2018, now at 27.275 billion pounds, down 85 million pounds. 

One of the driving factors to this is reduced slaughter weights. 

Although total slaughter headcounts have been at or above last year’s numbers, slaughter weights have been declining. 

The increase in headcount is not enough to offset the lower slaughter weights, leading to a decline in production. 

On Tuesday, the Choice-Select spread was negative 7 cents, with Choice boxed-beef at 190.79 and Select boxed-beef at 190.86. 

This was short-lived, as today’s Choice-Select spread closed at 5.57. 

Compared to last Friday, Choice boxed-beef closed at 191.42, dn .46 and Select boxed-beef was dn 4.12 at 185.85. 

Auction volume this week included 58 percent weight over 600 lbs and 39 percent heifers.

►  West Virginia ag officials say flooding may contaminate hay

West Virginia officials are warning farmers about the possibility that their hay could be contaminated by recent flooding.

The state Agriculture Department said in a news release feeding contaminated hay to animals can be dangerous.

The agency said forages that are affected by flood waters become contaminated with soil, bacteria and debris. Agriculture Commissioner Kent Leonhardt recommends that farmers make sure they know where hay comes from before buying it.

The department said not to feed bales that aren’t sealed on both ends and said some individually plastic-wrapped baleage may be usable. Farmers should closely inspect bales for punctures or separation of plastic layers. If the plastic separates, discard the forage. If it remains intact until feeding, inspect for abnormal smells or colors and presence of molds or excess moisture.


►  Maine’s ‘Passy Pete’ lobster predicts 6 more weeks of summer

A group of Mainers says Passy Pete the Lobster has predicted six more weeks of summer at an annual ceremony.

The crustacean has been fished out of the Passagassawakeag River for the past three years in a tradition modeled after famed groundhog Punxsutawney Phil’s winter prediction in Pennsylvania.

David Crabiel and his business partner, David Brassbridge, thought up the eccentric ceremony as a way to have some fun. Each year, a group of barons flank Passy Pete as he picks a scroll to determine whether Maine will see an extended summer or be greeted by winter. This year’s ceremony took place Monday.

Crabiel tells WLBZ-TV Pete’s been right the past two years. Brassbridge says they hope to carry on the tradition.


►  Dog helps sniff out invasive ants on California island

Scientists assessing long-term efforts to eradicate invasive ants on the Channel Islands off the Southern California coast have enlisted a four-legged expert to make sure an effort to kill off the destructive pests has succeeded.

A yellow Labrador named Tobias has lived for three months with a handler on Santa Cruz Island. The specially-trained dog keeps its snout to the ground, rooting through more than 1.6 square miles (4.1 square kilometers) of underbrush, searching for nests of Argentine ants that threatened the ecosystem after they were introduced decades ago.

Christina Boser, an ecologist with the Nature Conservancy group, said Tuesday that Tobias has not yet discovered any new ant populations — a sign that a project started in 2009 to wipe out the unwanted insects has probably worked.

“The ants are very hard to find,” said Boser, adding that researchers decided to try a detection dog after first using lures made with a synthetic ant pheromone. “He’s good at his job, and he enjoys it a lot.”

Researchers speculate the ants arrived in the Channel Islands more than 30 years ago when boats used by Navy contractors did work there.

Boser researchers have not destroyed several old nests to make sure Tobias has something to sniff out so he can get his work reward: A favorite ball.

Argentine ants found in the country and in other South American nations have crossed borders and bedeviled homeowners and farmers along the U.S. West Coast for decades.

In a protected environment like Santa Cruz Island, part of Channel Islands National Park, the tiny pests aggressively compete with local ants for nectar, Boser said. Ultimately they can prevent bees from pollinating flowers — stopping seed production and killing off plant species, she said.

Starting seven years ago teams began using helicopters to distribute beads containing a low dose of toxicant mixed with sugar water across infested areas of the islands northwest of Los Angeles. Seduced by the sweetness, foraging worker ants gobbled up the bait and headed back to their nests, where they poisoned ant queens. Without queens, the colonies eventually died off.

“We’re now at the point that we’re going back in there to see if it worked,” Boser said.

The fact that Tobias’ searches are coming up empty gives scientists hope, she said, but it will take further study of long-term data for them to declare the ants “functionally eradicated.”

Tobias, owned by the Working Dogs For Conservation group, previously sniffed out invasive quagga mussels at a lake in Montana.

When the stint on Santa Cruz Island ends, the dog will get a before being dispatched for the same ant-sniffing job on San Clemente Island, the southernmost link in the Channel Islands chain.

“We’re happy to keep him working, and he’s happy to do it,” Boser said.


►  Campfire Stories at Twin Falls Resort State Park Captivate the Imagination in September 2017

Renowned storyteller David “Bugs” Stover will tell tall tales at Twin Falls State Park in Wyoming County four evenings during the month of September. Each event will start at 6:30 p.m. at the campfire circle beside the Twin Falls campfire store.

On Friday, September 08, and Friday, September 15, Stover will tell stories of local lore. During the annual Lumberjackin’ Bluegrassin’ Jamboree at Twin Falls Resort State Park on September 22-23, Stover will be joined by Cully McCurdy for two additional storytelling dates. On Friday, September 22, they’ll share lumberjack stories and lore, and on Saturday, September 23, they’ll tell ghost stories of West Virginia and beyond.

“’Bugs’ draws a crowd. He’s memorable. He’s a character,” said Deana Cook, activities coordinator at Twin Falls. “He can weave a story that is mostly true or highly believable, and everyone has a great time.”

The campfire stories are open to the public at no cost. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating.

►  Inoculations give endangered California frog a shot at life

Endangered California frogs are getting an immunity boost from scientists who are scooping them up from remote Sierra Nevada ponds and sending them to big city zoos for inoculation, giving them a fighting chance to beat extinction, officials said Wednesday.

The experiment aims to rescue the 3-inch mountain yellow-legged frog — named for distinctive coloring under its hind legs. Scientists use nets to capture diseased tadpoles and then fly them by helicopter from their natural range deep within the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

The Free Press WV


They are next driven over 200 miles (322 kilometers) across the state to the San Francisco and Oakland zoos, where they are inoculated against a ravaging disease partly blamed for wiping them out from much of their historical range in the Sierra, scientists said.

Roughly 385 frogs have been treated at the zoos and returned after two years as healthy, young adults to their native lakes and ponds.

Aquatic ecologist Danny Boiano of the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, who has led the three-year project, said it appears to be paying off. Next, his team will study their frogs to determine if it’s working.

“It’s experimental at this point,” he said. “It’s going to take several years to find out if it works.”

The frog holds a key place in the Sierra Nevada food chain. Scientists say they feed on insects, then snakes and birds eat the frogs.

The species once thrived in such masses that people could not walk the shores of lakes and ponds in the mountain range without stepping on them, according to historical accounts, which add that with each step, dozens more launched into the water.

Their decline began a century ago with the introduction of non-native trout for sport fishing that gobbled up the tadpoles. Starting in the 1960s, the frog suffered a second blow from an invasive disease, called the chytrid fungus.

The fungus is blamed for the decline and extinction of more than 200 amphibians worldwide, scientists say.

Today, the mountain yellow-legged frog is missing from 90 percent of its historical region in the Sierra. Both state and federal wildlife authorities have listed it as endangered.

At neighboring Yosemite National Park, the frog’s population has made a significant recovery in part because rangers stopped stocking some lakes with non-native fish, park officials say.

Inoculating the frogs in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks costs roughly $175,000 a year, which Boiano said mostly goes to pay his team of 10 seasonal biologists doing field work.

“Just like vaccinating people, we are jump-starting their disease-fighting immune systems,” said Jessie Bushell, director of conservation at the San Francisco Zoo. “Letting the population completely die out is not a good option.”


►  West Virginia state parks to have electric charging units

Charging stations for electric vehicles are expected to be installed at all West Virginia state park guest lodges by the end of the year.

Nine of the state’s 10 park lodges already have at least three Tesla electric vehicle chargers and one universal vehicle charging unit. North Bend State Park is expected to have four charging stations installed before January.

The units are available to all electric vehicle drivers free of charges even if they’re not state park lodge guests.

Lodge and resort parks district administrator Paul Redford said the chargers offer great exposure to the state park system.

Although the units generate no revenue, drivers have time to “look around, visit our gift shops, get a bite to eat in our restaurants or decide to spend the night at one of our lodges, either that day or sometime in the future,” Redford said.

The units are now available at Blackwater Falls, Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Chief Logan, Hawks Nest, Pipestem, Stonewall Jackson, Twin Falls and Tygart Lake state parks.

The charging stations are part of an eco-friendly movement within the parks system.

Among its recycling efforts, Redford said the system has switched from using Styrofoam to recyclable paper cups for serving coffee. Some parks also are switching from incandescent to LED lighting and installing low-flow toilets to reduce water consumption.

And an outdoor pool at Watoga State Park in Pocahontas County is now solar heated, paid for by the park’s foundation with help from the county commission.

Sam England, chief of the DNR’s parks and recreation section, said the pool at the resort in Marlinton, elevation 2,100 feet, “was formerly known as the coldest pool in the state of West Virginia.” Now the pool’s warmer temperatures have attracted swimmers to the park, he said.

In addition, England said he challenged state park superintendents to reduce the amount of grass brush being mowed by at least 10 percent to save on fuel costs and on equipment wear and tear.


►  WVU Researchers Create Two New Tomato Varieties

Two new tomato varieties created by West Virginia University researchers have been named Mountaineer Pride and Mountaineer Delight.

According to the university, the names, chosen among more than 114 proposed, honor of the 150th anniversary of the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.

The varieties by researchers Mannon Gallegly and Mahfuz Rahman are also known as West Virginia ‘17A and ‘17B.

Gallegly, emeritus professor of plant pathology, says they initially considered releasing only one, but it became apparent both were good. He notes the ‘17A is firmer, with a thicker cell wall and better suited for commercial use.He says the ‘17B is sweeter and more suited for home gardeners.

Rahman is an associate professor and WVU Extension specialist. Gallegly also created the popular West Virginia ‘63 Tomato.
