Selling cow/calf pair?

Postby Kell-inKY » Mon Oct 31, 2016 5:29 pm

I have a cow I don't like, I am thinning the herd anyway, looking for the best option for selling her. This cow has a 2 month old calf, cow is not bred back. I usually do whatever loses me the most money, so am I just basically giving the calf away if I sell now or will it matter if I wait until calf is weened and she is bred back?

I need to sell something, so I'm not worried about losing a couple of dollars, just don't want to be too stupid. Thanks

Pairs are still bringing more than splits right now.

Get her breed back and then sell them.
