so should i do 7ft


It certainly couldn't hurt. If its too costly, then stick with the 6 foot. I have seen a Black Angus cow, go over a 6 foot, as well as a Brahma cross. But they were he77-bent on getting away.

Just gotta ask....what’s the value in a cow that takes a 7 - 8 foot corral pen to hold them and who cant see that before they write the check?

Bought a group of Brahman heifers out of south tx last week. One flat footed jumped out of my buddies pens. They’re almost 6 foot tall. :2cents:

If you have followed many of my post I have said I have bought ,and like to buy, cows that come in the sale and clear the place out as long as they have the right look about them. I can take them home put them in my corral and MOST of the time they will calm down and be following me around with a feed sack in a few days. They sell cheap because people don't have a lot to handle them in or just don't like to. Like anything they will make money if done the right way. Most all the time they will calm down to where they can be turned out and they will raise a calf and lot up like any other cow.
