Would have made a difference?

Postby callmefence » Thu Oct 19, 2017 10:43 am

I've got all my pairs at home now . All different ages and breeds. :)
Yesterday morning I decided I would rather go to the cow sale than work.
There's 3 charlois Pairs in the bunch.
Nice big cows about 5 year's old with 200- 300 calves. I thinks them might do ok as a group. Char are pretty common here but oddly you don't see many replacement go through. We get em penned up. I run down the road a few miles to check on the fence crew. Go back home to load the White Cattle.
Ones has a cut above the eye, not bad but bloody and all over the whole dam bunch. I cussed a bunch and turned them out....it was a real pretty little group. The blood made them look like he//.
Think it would have mattered

Buyers, here at least, look for any reason to pay less. The cows would have also been bought for hamburger here and the calves sold later.

I’d say probably. Probably would take out the bidder that would pay up over the regular buyers.

Here it, most likely, would have made a difference. I think you did the right thing, turning them back out.

Absolutely made a difference. Had you taken care of the cows before checking on the crew, you would have noticed
you needed gas and stopping to top it off, you'd have bought winning 6 million dollar lottery ticket.
But too late now. :cry2:

First thing would be when they seen the blood they would think she was crazy and hurt herself trying to get out of the corral. You done the best thing.

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Yep, any reason to pay less will be taken full advantage of. A rain to wash the blood off and you make money.

No . I wouldn't be opposed to one though. I bought these cows a couple calves back. They calves they have are of off a brangus bull. All greys .

Nothing wrong with those grey or yellow Chars.
