You'd need to mortgage a farm,, to put extra flesh on a longhorn..you see one with plenty of cover, you can bet it's spent a lot of time at the bunk..

What I was thinking Bigfoot. Look like typical longhorns. I've seen them with less conditioning go through sale barns down here.

The owner will get a black eye, that sale barn will make a fortune off of taking care of them and some vet will hit a home run by charging a fortune for checking every cow/calf (which won't happen). Then somebody will get some dirt cheap cattle.

Percentage wise it would be comparable to a herd of 30 having 2 dead.
There's a little history of the Hill county sheriff's department seizing livestock as well. I'm guessing the guy had a run of bad luck. Maybe bad management. and someone turned him in. Regardless their his cows. Not the countys.



Are you saying the Hill County Sheriff's Department seizes cattle so they can sell them and make money for the sheriff's department?


No I said there's history of them seizing livestock.
I also said the cows looked ok to me.
I also said that 17 dead out of 300 is not that extraordinary. Especially when you can bet every old pile of bones they found on hundreds of acres was counted as a dead. even if year's old. They seized them and hauled them to the sale barn. They coulda hauled in some hay cheaper and less stressful on the cattle. Maybe sat down and talked to the woman about selling some...but since they've called her a hoarder she must be. And the poor neighbor who ACTUALLY SAW A DEAD COW... the horror. Let's see if the county doesn't end up dropping charges in exchange for forfeiture of the herd.

Best thread we've had in a while.

You know cattle starve to death every day, with a hay roll in front of them.

I think Alabama said it best, you just about can't fatten some LH cattle.

Lots less people with cattle in my area now, than it was say 30 years ago. Used to see a bunch of cattle winter hard. You go snooping around, and you'll find a bunch of herds just like that one.

TB is right to. Lotta money will trade hands on that deal.
