What do you think about writing up a contract that if I have them palpated and they are not bred that she has to give me XXX amount of dollars back? I know that in OH if both parties sign its a legally binding contract even if its on a napkin from a bar (my buddies a lawyer). Worst case is a) I take her to small claims court or b) I just lose out on the calves that will help cover the cost of the cows.

At least I would have something to go back on I guess.....

They look good. A $5 preg check sure looks cheap in this situation.

I just spoke with the lady. They ran with the bull for 4 months which eases my mind. Also she was ok with giving back $500 if they're not bred which I am ok with. And she delivers. Said they weaned off their first calves easy with fence line weaning which is what I plan to do.

I will write up a contract and have both parties sign.

I am good with the deal and excited to get these girls home to our farm. :banana:

Thanks to all of you for your comments and help. This forum has been a life saver for me!

You made a very good deal and bought two outstanding cows. Please return with updates on the calves.

Put em in the trailer and take em to the vet and have em checked. How much is it there?

I wish my vet had a discount for "preg check Wednesday's!

I've got a couple cousins that breed dairy cows and I'm going to have them come out and check. And they're family so it's free! Lol

I also put in the contract I have 60 days to either have calves on the ground or palpated. Which ever comes last.

BigBear, where in Ohio is this lady located? Our place is 45 miles south on Cincinnati. Does she have anymore cows for sale?

She's NE of Newark. I asked if we could come out and see them so we loaded up the kids and took a little road trip. She's got a mixed bag of different breeds in her herd. She mentioned several times that she did not want to sell these 2 but she needs some money to get her tractor fixed. I don't believe she wants to sell anymore and only has a couple red angus calves left.

The cows looked even better in person. They are beautiful. She said she got them out of Pennsylvania along with the bull (which she has sold since breeding these 2). I'm quite certain they're bred and close too. As big around as propane tanks and really saggy vulvas. Very skiddish though. Looked wild as deer. My wife is the cow whisperer. :lol: She will have them tame as dogs in a few months. We are all excited to get them here on Monday.

I do plan on selling any bull calves if your interested.
