I've had a standing order at some Colorado sale barns for the last few weeks buying heifers in the 5's like yours. I'm getting it done for $131 at 527lbs. Those heifers are going to a growyard in Colorado to be limit fed and spayed. They'll get turned out on one of our Wyoming ranches in early May.

Two order buyers and a construction worker fought over thin 3 to 6 year old cows today - - $1350 to $1500 each. :shock: Must be grass fever since that kind had been going for $1200. I drove home empty. :hat:
