Roaaad Trip !

Postby Stocker Steve » Sat Apr 22, 2017 11:07 pm

Dad was in town so we went hit the road today after chores. Looked over a used Case tractor, went to two bull sales, won a door prize, and stopped at a micro brewery on the way to a Johnny Cash Tribute show. I love the cattle business!!!

The sale pricing was all over -- with some grade yearling heifers at about $800 and most registered yearling heifers at about $1400. The grade heifers were green and the registered heifers were greasy... :nod: How does an average producer justify buying a shiny $1400 yearling?
