At least there's a good market, now you just need to discuss price. The boss is going to cut you off if you keep that up.

You're too low, add another 8-10k, then you can find some here and there.

Here in Va we are seeing bred heifers in the 1200 to 1500 range. At the last bred sale in mid-Dec., we bought 3 cows that are about 7-8 yrs old with 150-200 lb STEER calves by their side for $800. each. Good flesh, not fancy but good looking calves and cows have milk. The heifers topped the sale, a few at 1800, the rest less. Some bred cows in the 1000 range and less. If you wanted to come this far I could let you know when the next sale is. Usually they have them advertised at our local market about 2 weeks ahead of time. All are either checked preg at the sale or have a vet certificate where they were preg checked on the farm. IF it ever warms up LOL, the sales closer to spring will usually be a little higher than the late fall. The best time to buy here is late fall going into winter as so many are trying to lower their numbers for the winter.

These are average animals, although there were some nice black angus last fall from a farm that sold out in the 1500-2200 range.

Are they registered gizmom? I'm not looking to buy anything right now but if you wouldn't mind sending me the price I'd appreciate it. Considering in the future adding angus cows in our herd to make ultrablacks and ultimately brangus.
