Money In The Bank Sale
Bred Heifers
900 - 999 lbs. @ $875.00 - $1250.00
1000 and over @ $875.00 - $1650.00
332 head offered

Somebody payed $1650 for bred heifers in 2005, when calves were worth less than $400. I think they took to Christmas drinking a little early. I paid $800 that year and people thought I was a little nuts. One bid over kill price for premium bred heifers.

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

October 1950
Off our ranch that we owned in Texas at the time, my grandfather sold 1,200 #1 yearling steers weighing 725lbs. to a Nebraska buyer for $23/cwt. as per Livestock Weekly.
Running that through an inflation calculator shows that as about $204/cwt. today.
