I did the close out cost on our old broken mouth cows from last year. We done good. S0 I went to a bred cow sale today just on a scouting trip. Cows topped at $1,400. Most were around $1,200. The broken mouth cow deal sure wouldn't work today. The kill buyers bought all those bigger framed cows weighing 1,300-1,200 pounds. They were paying $800 a head. Hay twice as expensive and cows costing an extra $150. That just don't pencil for me. The buy of the day was some good bred black heifers from a reputation ranch weighing a little over 1,000 which sold for $1,000. They were bred 6 months.
