Flipping few cows and heifers past two weeks / was seeing if anyone did it on here had any advice been buying 6-7!yr old brangus cows 7-8 months bred making 50-125 a head minus diesel cost. Buying a few brehmer heifers and tigers as well they been more expensive as well price profit been smaller .
As well as what do guys charge delivering.... ?? Thanks if i missed anything love If you guys could add. I’m only buying a hand 3-5 at a time going to sale to sale ....
On a regular basis....I’d rather have a place to go with them and know I could at least break even.

Past couple years I’ve been on the fence about staying in or getting out. Started buying middle aged bred cows that need some tlc but mostly something better to eat than the were getting. Goal was to get the calf and add weight to the cow then sell. Still have some of the better 80 cent cows. The others, mostly broke even on the calf and weight cows @ $.50 - $.60. Almost doubled my money with some this last go round but I managed to bail before covid wrecked it.

Personally I’m not savvy enough to trade cattle week to week, but I’ll dabble and pick off some from time to time for a longer term trade. Been 7 weeks since I’ve been to a sale and wanted to go today to see how which the wind is blowing but didn’t make it. Got a lot of grass some hungry cows could use but I’m in no hurry to buy when slaughter is backing up like it is.
Yeah i also buy what I like to so if they don’t sale lol no problem I’ll let them calve out and let them raise a calf. Yeah but everything I been selling is good enough to keep and nothing has just been junk.
