Hint to cg8, you didn't do yourself any favors bringing that one up. You did however help prove the point of a lot of people on here.

Yes there was. Thanks to all who took time to share their experiences. I presented a program over 20 years ago that selling value added calves would be the norm and those that didn't would be docked to cover the extra medicine and increased death loss. It was received about as well as Cowgirl8 receives suggestions.

Seeing how the NETBIO sale at Sulphur Springs has established itself as a way for small producers to take advantage of selling in load lots and producers like Jedstivers can send straightened out calves hundreds of miles to be sold is proof that what I said that night is coming true.


Where I used to work, we had a few discussions about this type of thing, about 17-18 years ago as well as talk of getting involved in a "ranch-to-rail" type of program with some of the calves. Back then, it was all very new type of thinking, but I am glad they were open to it. In the long run it proved to be very profitable for the owners. (I'm referring to selling 'value-added-calves'). They even began to participate in a "retained-ownership" program, with some small groups, of 100 to 200. They were pleased with that as well. What was especially beneficial for the herdsman was the feedback and data that was received. Very helpful in planning future breedings, feeding, etc.

If youre in the cattle business and you need told you lose weight when hauling to the sale barn, well, youre in the wrong business. Period. This discussion was pretty pointless..

Re: sale barn shafted me



CG8, with the number of calves you sell you should be selling them off the farm via Internet auctions.

I know that's been suggested to you in the past but it still makes sense to me.

Some folks can't see the whole picture. ...or maybe their brain isn't capable of processing common sense.

I did indeed say the following:

"CG8, with the number of calves you sell you should be selling them off the farm via Internet auctions.

And I stand by that today for any operation your size.

You can lead a horse to water but can't make it drink.

Then why keep trying to make the fair mare drink? Take her back to the barn, give her some oats and go back to the house and give your pretty wife a nice hug.

You hate to have to put one down, but you can't let them suffer. My sweetie is at a GCA woman's retreat so that'll have to wait.

I never said that.

It is easy to see why you struggle in personal relationships though.

Because the old nag keeps standing at the fence pawing and neighing and just in general being a pain in the butt.
