This afternoon I drove to the ranch where I've purchased bulls the past several years. There were probably well over a hundred head
to choose from, with one pen suitable to use on heifers and the other pen holding bulls better suited to use on cows. Cost was
$2000 per bull--half down and the other half payable when I go get the bulls in mid May. By then they will be fertility checked, and
the ranch personnel will have them branded for me. I take up an electric iron for them to use. The system has worked well for both
buyer and seller.

I picked ten head out of each pen.

Another cow-type bull. It was cold and windy, so I forgot to take pictures of the bulls to use on heifers.

He'll be a big fella when he grows into the rolls on his pantcuffs. :D


Looks like a nice uniform set of bulls. I like the price also.

he is a little sour over the hereford bull deal, but it was more like this.... "i told you old man grandpa - take those pointy headed buggers out of the show ring and...

looks like the folks with the black bulls ACTUALLY develop them for the long haul... and not just say they do like everyone else.

"It put's the milk in the bottle or it gets the hose."

"So, since when have you been in charge around here?"

"Hey, ain't you got a bottle for me yet?"

"Your the boss huh? Frankly, I am not too impressed. Now feed me."

"Tell me a bedtime story, before I nod off."
