Nice surprise

Postby torogmc81 » Fri Jun 29, 2018 5:57 am

I took a 4 yr old cull on Monday to Bluegrass Stockyard, assuming i'd get my usaual $6-700 dollar check in the mail a few days later. Nope. I wasn't even close. She busted the scale at 1640, and brought .70 . Not only that, I had loaded her the night before, so she was in the trailer for 12-14 hours before off loading her. Not sure how much weight she would have lost being locked up that long.

Still not the ideal way to grab $1100, but I'll still take and it move on ….

Not bad. Not bad at all. Sure beats $600

She would have lost some but probably rehydrated well once unloaded at the sale barn and found the water trough. She did awfully good.
