Producers Sell Over 5,000 Head Of Cattle At NETBIO Sale

Producers Sell Over 5,000 Head Of Cattle At NETBIO Sale

Auctioneer and Livestock Commission co-owner Joe Don Pogue takes bids on a pen of cattle during the Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization’s May sale held Wednesday. Livestock producers converged on the Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission Wednesday to market their cattle in the May Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization pre-conditioned stocker and feeder calf sale. A total of 241 producer/members of NETBIO shipped nearly 5,500 head of calves and yearlings to the sale. Those cattle were purchased by 36 buyers who paid an average of $795.17 per head. Sellers, buyers and visitors from throughout the region — and some from neighboring states — attended the sale that featured a lot of excellent quality cattle. “We had a lot of good cattle consigned to the sale and there was a lot of interest from the buyers — both those at the sale and some buying over the Internet,” said David Fowler, co-owner of the livestock commission. Buyers bidding over the Internet purchased 1,042 head of cattle. Fowler said feedlot buyers were well represented, along with many buyers from throughout the region. “It was a very good offering of cattle and buyers recognized the excellent quality,” Fowler said. Most of the cattle purchased were going to feed yards in the Panhandle. However, Fowler added that quite a few were purchased to go back to grass out west and to local pastures. Cattle prices held up well under “not so good world marketing conditions,” primarily because producers shipped in quality pre-conditioned cattle and the demand for all weights was good. The NETBIO Pre-Conditioned Stocker and Feeder Calf Sale gives producers a market to offer their pre-conditioned calves and yearlings in load lot quantities. NETBIO holds eight pre-conditioned calf sales per year, which is the marketing arm for members of the organization. The next sale will be held at the Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission on Wednesday, July 17. The weaning deadline for calves consigned to that sale is June 2. The last date for booster shots is June 17. That sale will be followed by sales on Sept. 18, followed by a sale on Oct. 16 and the anniversary sale on Nov. 20. Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission co-owner David Fowler, left, and Mount Vernon cattleman Jason Hughes visited before the Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization’s May sale Wednesday.

SSHS Spring Football Wraps Up

SSHS Spring Football Wraps Up

Wildcats Varsity and JV Take on Gilmer in 7 on 7 Football Tuesday Night  The Wildcats’ 7 on 7 football teams, JV and Varsity, took on Gilmer Tuesday evening (May 14) in the Multipurpose Building. Both teams got in two games with the Buckeyes. In the first Varsity game, the Wildcats and Buckeyes tied, 35-35 with Gilmer scoring a touchdown right as the horn went off signaling the end of the game. Quarterback Noe Ponce led the Wildcats to their first two scores throwing TD passes to Aidan Walker and to Chase Haney. Quarterback Kaden Wallace threw the last three touchdowns in game one finding Da’Korian Chock Sims, Brycen Lacy and Detrick Clayton. Neither team threw an interception. Game two for the Varsity against Gilmer turned out to be a nightmare. Wildcats quarterbacks threw five interceptions. Wildcats defenders intercepted Gilmer twice. Teams get three points per interception. The Buckeyes managed 3 touchdowns to none for the Wildcats in the 36-6 game. For the JV Wildcats, they topped the Gilmer JV, 20-13 in game one. Both teams threw two interceptions. Both JV quarterbacks, Matthew Sherman and Ty Stroud, had one TD pass each. In JV game two, both teams scored four touchdowns and there were no interceptions in the 28-28 tie. Wildcats Offensive Coordinator Matt Young said it was great to have talented Gilmer in town. He said they provide a different look and challenge you with their speed. He said things that may work for us against us in practice may not work against Gilmer so players have to adapt. Coach Young said the second varsity game did not go as planned. He said coaches would look at the game tape to figure out why. He said there were drops by receivers and he said the quarterbacks may have been forcing some things. Coach Young said he expects growing pains with the young team. He said JV quarterbacks Sherman and Stroud looked like they had improved dramatically. Wildcats Defensive Coordinator Alex Guerra said 7 on 7 football helps defenders with their zone drops and man coverage. He said it helps young defenders go against fast guys. Coach Guerra said he likes the competition and added 7 on 7 helps young guys learn to get to the spots where they need to be on defense. He added he’s ready for some real 11 on 11 football at the Wildcats Spring Game that marks the end of spring football Friday at 6 p.m. at Gerald Prim Stadium
