First hollow stem is character- ized by 1.5 cm of hollow stem present below the developing grain head. First hollow stem samples collected at Stillwater on Monday showed that many varieties were at or past first hollow stem. Our wheat plots at Stillwater are likely four or five days ahead of most producer fields; how- ever, they clearly indicate that first hollow stem is rapidly approaching for all producers. It is highly prob- able that any wheat sown prior to October 1 will be at or past first hollow stem by March 1 and March 15 will be two weeks .too late to remove cattle from wheat pasture. It's Nearly Spring in Oklahoma...Maybe Spring has not quite sprang in Oklahoma, though it is hard to tell since we have had very little you could call winter. It is acting more like spring with increasing temperatures and more wind. Much of the state has received mois- ture recently and conditions are generally much better than this time last year. Stock pond water levels remain very low, however, in many places. Wheat pasture, though it started late, has done very well this winter and so have the cattle grazing it. Most of the wheat variet- ies in Oklahoma are at or very near first hollow stem stage, which means that cattle must be removed immediately in order to preserve grain yields. I do not expect to see much market impact from a "wheat pasture run" for a several of reasons. First, overall grazing numbers are fairly limited. Secondly, I suspect, though I do not have any data to confirm, that significan t numbers of heifers are grazing wheat that will be retained for replacements and third, much of the wheat that is being grazed is intended for forage only and will be grazed out. Feeder cattle prices in Oklahoma are leaving many producers (and lend- ers) breathless. Based on last week's auction prices, a 500 pound, medium/large #1 steer was priced at about $190/cwt. or $950/head. Just as we talk about the corn market trying to buy acres for corn production, it seems the market is trying to buy some heifer retention. Various data sets suggest that the annual cow cost for most produc- ers is in the range of $600- 700/cow/year. Upwards of $250/head in returns per cow should be enough to stimulate some interest in herd expansion. It will take another 4-6 weeks to really see what kind of spring is in store for Oklahoma. If conditions are good when green up really takes off, the replacement female market will like- wise take off. At the cur- rent time, bred heifer and cows; and cow-calf pairs are priced significantly below current markets farther north. I expect this gap to close by late March if green grass is happening by that time. Bred cows in Oklahoma are currently priced mostly in the range of $1000-$1475 per head, Prices for young bred cows in Nebraska were reported last week in the range of $1275-$2375/head. Bred heifers in Nebraska were reported in the range of $1350-$2110 last week. P.O.
