That's a lot of BEEF!

My Dad sent me an e-mail attachment this morning of our KLA News & Market Report.

In the report was a column about the number of cattle we have in our county back home. Haskell County is centered around agriculture. The county is comprised of many farms. We grow mainly corn, wheat, milo, soybeans, cotton, and some sunflowers. We also have lots of cattle on feed. This makes since because we have the feed resources and commodities available in our area. Here are the stats for our county...which I think is pretty cool (I might be a little biased though...)!

Largest cattle inventory in the state of Kansas: 415,000 head
Largest cattle on feed inventory: 235,000 head
Total cattle inventory in Kansas: 6.1 million (that's a lot of cows!)
