That crew can sure pack away the PIE :!: Oh well most of them weren't drinkers so food is cheap entertainment. Yea looks like I have renewed interest in Galloway. That was a different party when that picture was taken but a fun time no the less. They must have been short of pictures cause they used a bunch this issue.

I know that some Galloway would make thrifty cows but the calves still need to sell and some buyers don't know how they perform. I think if a person was in a grass fed program they would be great but I am not there at this time.

Quite a few years ago, I considered using Galloway bulls on my first calf heifers. Several potential buyers expressed concern that the extra hair would collect too much mud in the feedlots. They properly scared me on selling the calves so I decided against the project. I even had one bull bought, but made my ol' spur-trading uncle a whale of a deal, and got the bull peddled. :wink: :)

I hear you Soapweed, If you don't have a matket it is going to cost you. Sort of if it's not broke why fix it. That's why I thought if a person was in a grass finishing or maybe ust running them to long yearling then finish might work, or in a niche program like Randy's.
