Between working a full time job farming and keeping up with my rental houses I don't have a lot of free time. To buy say 50 calves of what Iam looking for could take several days of going to the market. I don't have time for that. I understand that it's a investment of my money but theres more money to be made with my other interests. I was just wondering what was a fair rate to pay someone to buy for me possibly someone with more knowledge than me about buying calves from the market.

You can also talk to the barn ahead of time and see if they have a group llike that coming in , they will usually take a bid if you can't be there on a group of that size.

We trade with our buyer for $10 per head whether it is 1 or 100.

the most important issue to me would be someone whom I could trust and you do not find that in a quick interview process.

everyone hanging around a stockyard is looking to turn a dollar.

Would you object to investing in a mutual fund just because you are not the one picking each individual stock in it?
To each their own.


There is a direct correlation between ability to utilize all available resources and scale. Nothing wrong with it, but inability or decision not to use other resources limits scalability. Can be happy either way, I guess.
