I am going to Carthage tomorrow, I'll get you a market report. I have an order for SS bred cows. Will try to buy them just over packer market.

Its a bad idea for some one with your experience level unless you just have money to burn.

Bfields, I live between Canton and Mabank. I make Van Zandt Commission close to Wills Point nearly every week for 26 years and have been going to Carthage off and on for nearly 15 years. Carthage is 110 mile trip but I see the 1 1/2 upgradable calves more there than at home. You need to come to Van Zandt some Saturday

How old are they? Good shape?

The calves may have more leather than desirable.

They are in good shape 5-7 yrs old I was gonna buy the 5 yrs olds and resell in a month or two as pairs didn’t know if that was a good or bad idea lol.
