If I go have him tipped what do y'all think he is worth. I think he is is a 2500 maybe more bull but I listed him for 2250 cause of the horns. Am I wrong?

I'd ask the 2500 anyway.... You can lose folks interest on one priced to low as well as to high...

You can only sell something for what someone is willing to pay. You'll look long, hard and far before you'd ever see a bull like him around these parts.

The 2 largest sale barns in the state are located within 50 miles of our place, and there's 3 smaller ones within 30 miles. It's not Texas but we do have some cattle around here. Just no BM herd bulls that I'm aware of. And I've never seen a decent horned bull of any bred come through our local sale barns.

Real nice bull, minus the horns.

Grit, we don't have that many cattle in the state anymore, either. Sanderson Farms probably has more birds on I-55 than we have cattle in Louisiana.

He would be a $3500 bull in this area if he were a Brangus.

not many BM cattle in the south east anymore, in the 80's you couldnt sling a dead cat and not hit one,,,blind folded...then it was Charolais in the 90s..now it's Angus...take a laxative it works the whole area...

Saw those horns and leave 4" stubs. I bet you will get $1600-1800 at best.

My family has mainly Beefmaster influenced cattle. They do a really good job in this area but they just aren't as marketable. That is the only thing I fault them on.
