October was a busy month for us at Russell Feed, especially with all of the fundraisers and events we held in support of many excellent causes. We were able to participate in five different fundraisers in October:
- Don’t Forget to Feed Me pet food pantry truck campaign;
- The Dan Can fundraiser in support of Dan & his fight with cancer;
- Azle FFA Alumni Backers Beans and Cornbread night;
- Pink Out at the Rodeo to support the Careity Foundation and breast cancer awareness;
- and the Cross Timbers Quail fundraiser
We were honored to be able to support such worthy causes in our community and we thank you for your generous support.
November is my favorite month of the year for two big reasons- deer season and Thanksgiving. The first weekend in November should be a national holiday in Texas, as it is the opening weekend of deer season. I hope you get to spend some quality time out in the field. Don’t forget we carry a complete line of Triple C deer feeders, attractants, and proteins to maximize the success of your hunts.
Did I mention Thanksgiving? What fun! Food and family. It doesn’t get any better than that.
My personal favorite meeting of the year happens November 21st. That’s right, it’s time for our 21st Annual Cattle Seminar, and this year looks to be the best one ever. We have something for everyone, including great speakers, great food, and great deals on feed. If you have cattle, be sure to RSVP online or by phone to Tammy at 817-624-6224 as soon as possible to hold your spot.
We are looking for some feedback from our customers. We are considering moving away from payment by paper checks. Most folks use their debit cards for payment. Since we started taking debit cards, we see fewer and fewer payments by paper checks. However, a growing percentage of these checks are now coming back due to lack of funds, fraud, theft, etc. We would appreciate your feedback on how this potential policy change would affect you. Please email us at [email protected], call any of our stores or stop in and talk to us. We appreciate your input.
We also want to thank you for your patience during our computer upgrades. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Feed & Hay
I am pleased to report feed prices are still trending down. Bryan lowered cube and corn prices again in late October. Hopefully this movement will continue.
As far as hay goes, our inventory of 2-string alfalfa will soon be depleted, and I don’t expect to get any more in this season. All other hay is in good shape.
See you around the barn,
