If you cross the river before, leave a good horse on this side.

Not sure that would hurt my feelings but it would hurt a lot of other places...

I hauled a 700 lb Brahman crossbred zebra striped heifer and got 800 frog hides.
Compared to her competition she rang the bell.
I still can't get over Brangus pairs bring 1100 dollars.
Just wasn't many back to the farm buyers. I should have pulled the trigger on three or four pairs and ran them till fall. Grass is greening up but has absolutely no nutritional value right now. I didn't haul the trailer as I hadn't planned to buy any yet
It was date night and I just didn't have time or wanted to get that look from the Mrs cause I was screwing that up.

CB you think that's going to be the ongoing trend??Haven't seen any sale barn reports from this area in a while so no idea but go to town and goosenecks are going all directions.

TB I think in a couple weeks those prices are going to jump.
Barn was packed Saturday no one was buying my crystal ball says they are short on hay and grass right now.
They did better at Crockett on Tuesday
Volume was very low for Crockett

I have been picking up bred cows that pregged 6 or 7 months. In the last three weeks I have bought 13. There are 2 heifers, 1 old cow, 1 pair and the rest are mid aged cows. They are all black and probably average around 1,300 pounds. I have an average under $800 into them.

There were 120 from one farm sell out that had those pairs. 3rd period young cows were as high as $1960. It was a heck of a sale I was told. The info came from several people so it's not fabricated.

About right if the cows were good. That 500 lb. calf is worth $750 at least.

No one wants heavy feeders due to low fat futures prices. Light cattle were more in demand. I sold my 553# red sort off heifers today for $136.
