My brother sharpened the blades on the hay mower, and I ran into a metal fence post on the first round. That was a winner!

It might of made you feel better about keeping the high priced retained heifers, but you can't ever make up for lost money.

If the heifers turned into good cows it's still a good investment, if they didn't them it's more like adding insult to injury
