The buyers were present but the sheep and goats were missing in action at the latest sale at Winnipeg Livestock Auction. At times it felt like walking the streets of a ghost town at the March 7 event, with just 69 animals continuing a trend towards low animal supply. A 125-pound Rideau-cross lamb represented the heavy-weight class. This lamb brought $162.56 ($1.30/lb.). The ringmaster became immediately aware, this lamb was going to control the ring, and his stay was short.
With no holidays sparking demand, the latest sheep and goat sale at Winnipeg Livestock Auction was a subdued affair, with just 106 animals delivered Feb. 21. Most market observers are casting an eye towards Easter at the end of this month, and the summer months. The bidding on the wool ewes did not reach the same level seen at the last sale. The animals offered were of similar weight, and price ranged from $0.80 to $1/lb.
The local sheep and goat market must be watching the wild swings on Wall Street and taking notes. Prices at the Feb. 7 sale at Winnipeg Livestock Auction were taking their own dramatic legs up and down. The 80 animals that went into the ring were also clearly following the trends noted in the latest Ontario Stockyard Report. During the sheep sale wool ewes dominated and once again buyers appeared to be picking what they wanted based on their own instincts.
Happy birthday to one of the greatest guys in this business. @ReynoldsWolf, hope your birthday is as nice to you as you are to everyone you meet... and if even half as nice as you are to me this birthday will be outstanding
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
