    I’d take that weather. Going to be 55 in my neck of the woods tomm



  • @FarmerJayhawk we had 1000’s of cattle die due to heat, humidity and lack of wind. My bro in law said they needed to feed them later too. He’s a rancher/farmer. It was gross seeing them all laying there dead.

    I saw. SW Kansas got hit incredibly hard. Freaky weather event. I told my grandparents to head back to Colorado for awhile to avoid it

    When you expect 80 85 this time of yr and have 6, 7 months of pure cold yeah I’ll trade anyday!



  • @FarmerJayhawk A vet was on tv tonight and said he said he’s only seen this twice, it’s a very rare weather phenomenon. It’s also very hard on the owners and the vets trying to help.



  • Our a/c went out. 97 now. On their way!



  • Yay, only a capacitor! Fixed now.

    Heat sucks!

    you can say that again



  • @mayjay good thing you won’t be like those cattle!🐂 it really is a bad thing, shouldn’t make light of it. Pretty rough thing to see. The governor has stepped in to help.



  • As someone who has been around feedyards for over 40 years -unfortunately feed timing has nothing to do with the death loss @Crimsonorblue22 it’s too bad as that would be an easy fix - the cattle have feed in front of them all day long - starts at 6 am, second feeding around noon third feeding finishing up around 4:30 - some places only feed twice 6-12 am and 1-4pm - 35,000-95,000 head of cattle per lot, it doesn’t happen instantly. Feed timing makes a big difference for cows that are calving - feed once per day at night and they are likely calve in the morning.

    The pens were testing up to 150 degrees - wet manure on the ground was black, no shade, 106 degree air temps, high humidity (for here), and zero wind. These dead animals were 400-500# overweight and black too. The feedyards job is to pack weight on them and get good marbling in the meat, that doesn’t happen on a skinny animal - they are morbidly obese by the time they leave (or in this case die).

    If you want pure comedy gold read any of the comments on twitter about it. - they were poisoned, the rancher needs more water for them, the government did it like they killed the buffalo, chem-trails, all 10,000 died on a ranch etc etc. it’s funny until you realize they are serious and are allowed to vote.

    10,000+ cattle dead is hard on the owners of the cattle, they would’ve had all the expense in the animal with no income/ insurance to cover the loss. The feedyards don’t own all the cattle in the yards - just a portion the rest is custom fed by little guys like me - only lost one that I know of - locally raised so they handled the weather better.

    Figure $1700-1850/ dead animal x10,000



  • @dylans Yet another facet of meat production that I enable myself to forget in order to stay sane. 😶

    My favorite is Bill Gates had them whacked to make us eat plant burgers



  • @FarmerJayhawk Putin death ray is great too



  • @FarmerJayhawk This is extra funny because it’s like a fraction of a percentage of the cattle is Kansas alone. Like, if someone was really going to do something like that, you’d have to kill A LOT more.

    Most in one place was reported at 2,000. Been reading up on it. Maybe 10k across the state but we don’t know for sure from when I last looked.



  • K-St lands their 7th transfer in Tykei Greene, SG/Wing from Stony Brook. They still have a few more open spots.

    K-St is likely to be among the worst Power 5 schools in Basketball this season. Their awesome fanbase can thank Bruce again

    What you think about the group they bringing in ?- I serious no nothing on these guys. - I seriously hope mybe they could become a little more competitive, new players - - New Coach - -what you think my friend



  • @jayballer67

    I think they will be on the worst teams in Power 5. Not one of the 7 transfers is a game changer. Nowell was a pain for us last year but that’s about it. No idea what to expect from the new coach but I would expect a lot of growing pains

    More scraps. But hey, you’d rather fill it out than not, throw numbers at it.

    BTW, Emoni Bates to EMU. 😂

    Emoni Bates is from Ypsilanti, so that actually isn’t as big a surprise as it may seem. He’s just a kid going back home to go to school.



  • @justanotherfan Yeah it’s just…a big fall from Gatorade POTY, all the hype etc.

    He seems like a fine kid, with some potential bad influences. He’s a pro player, with the level tbd depending on the work he puts in from this point forward. This is a pivotal moment for him.



  • Bates just turned 18 in January. Wild he’ll be a sophomore in college. Maybe heading down a level will help him out. Being away from media and all that jazz.
