I went to the local sale barn today and I don't know what adult cattle would bring as there were none there. :???:
Some of the worst looking calves I have seen still walking averaged around 400# and brought $1.48 to $1.60 per pound :? - - - these were in groups of 4 to 6 head and would have totaled 50 head. I guess the factory farmer with 5 to 20 acres must be buying them as I don't feel I'm good enough to keep half of them alive and sure would not want to try to make money on them.
There was not a good looking calf in the barn. I have not been there for several years but have been hearing these stories so I thought I would go a few weeks to see what is happening. :roll:
As cheap as corn and hay are I was thinking of buying a few to add to the 30 I have and feed them out.
Not today!!!! :!:
