most of that was from buying cheap during '11, growing the herd with my small heifers, and selling a good, proven herd to a single guy. I also retained 50k of the best cattle of the group. Which is about what I had in the entire group. I also sold the calves during those years that paid for my farm payment and any expenses.

The year prior I sold out my sheep herd for 40k which I had about 8k into.

LUTE THEM ALL ! ! !! ! ! ! ! !


While I don't care how much or how you make money, You'd have to be pretty inept not to turn a profit buying in '11 and selling in '15,.. but can you predict the highs and lows accurately enough to do it repeatedly?
