Doesn't seem like it would be legal either.

I think the first property he was getting, there were zoning laws that applied. Maybe it was in the city limits and just down the road they were out of city limits which was just the other side of number 2 barn.

I met him a couple of times at one of his working pens on FM 2352 in Lamar County a few years ago, tho they likely wouldn't know me from adam. I used to go up and watch them work cattle while my wife was visiting with her family about 1/2 mile up the road toward FM 37 North of Paris and Sumner. Saw them do a C section on a good looking cow that went down in the chute and suffocated and they tried to save the calf. Didn't work. He seemed like a nice enough guy and he and QB Stevens were well liked there in the community of Georgia (pronounced 'Georgie') from what my in-laws said.
They run baldies and brangus.
I know nothing of his business dealings at all.

Where I am, there are at least 4 places within 50 miles or so of each other that have sales on Saturdays. Another does sales on Tuesdays.

Does it effect the prices? I figured less buyers at each sale would be bad

Back in the day when Jacksonville and Tri-County were both going head to head 12 miles apart on Saturdays, one sold the calves first and the other sold the cows first. Calf buyers would leave as soon as the could get checked out and head to the other sale.

No, not really. A couple of the places bring better prices than the others.

One of them brings better prices for Holsteins than the others. This same one will also bring better prices on goats and hogs. Another one, the prices aren't that great, mainly because the facility itself is a bit of a hole. Two of them, the prices are comparable, not much of a difference.

I had heard a couple of weeks ago that the man had instructed his nephews to open it. This week I heard that the barn is for sale. Who knows?

Looks like all construction has stopped. We drove by it the other day and no construction equipment was working or even there. Looks abandoned... So sad, it was going to be quite the facility..
