Oh yeah, a question
Why does the one guy hate the others and what does he do to be able to support a loosing barn if it comes to that?

I don't know.....i'm sure someone has the answer, but I've only heard he's doing it out of spite..

Well, you hear everything but the truth. Bet there's more to it or he'll soon be out of business. Barns that size aren't cheap. Will take a huge amount of money to keep one running that's loosing money.

If I ran a big operation like some claim, I'd be sellng potloads to a buyer out of Kansas or Oklahoma and I'd only be hauling culls or singles to the local sale barn. We have 6 farms that I know of within 20 miles of me that sell everything that way, surely they'd come to east Texas.

Yep. Paris ain't too far from my circuit preacher route. If he's doing this for spite, who will he spite if he does succeed. I don't do business with azzholes

Why don't you sell your calves in OKC and avoid the drama. Probably a better price to boot.

We had a new barn open just outside Navasota a few years ago, 2 or 3 miles from the one that's been there forever. At the time the story was the same as you're saying, they were trying to run the old one out of business. The new one didn't last long under the original management, but it has new owners now and they're both still in business.

That is something that makes a pretty large difference to how well a barn takes care of you. A lot of people don't catch on to how sharp the people that run these barns are. Most of the time they catch on if somebody is selling elsewhere and will stop worrying about how that guys cattle sell. A good loyal customer selling decently large numbers of cattle that sells all of them with one barn will be well taken care of. May even be able to get a break on commission if you sold there consistently for long enough.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Paris is already a hub.
Meth, marijuana, blow, crack, hookers and the only place I've ever been you can take your pick of nearly new tailgates at pawnshops..

Did you know a tailgate for a ford platinum is 6,000 dollars?
Least that's what my body shop man told me.

Didn't know it, but it doesn't surprise me.
Even steel ones were never cheap.
