And they brought a whopping $1100 per head. 105 head of their younger lighter sisters weighed 532 pounds
and brought $1000 per head. The cattle were very impressive, and so was the amount for which they sold.
Quality pays. :)

Congrats on your sale. I am struggling with keeping my hiefers this year or sell them and buy some young cows back. Hard to pass up 900-1000 bucks a head.

Looks to me like you should have had all red cattle yesterday. Sounds like you did a good job of marketing again. Lisa said if was an extremely hot sale.

Took my 3 year old Granddaughter to the local sale yesterday- and after a 1/2 hour the auctioneers chant had her asleep in the chair... I told them she was just practicing to be a "buyer"... :wink:
I think they were all sleeping yesterday as the prices were no where near what they are paying down Soaps way- saw very few bunches that came close to $900...
