I just sold a nice black/white face heifer calf for $109 that was bout 10 days old. The mama was three tited and all the little dumb be nice would sux was the dead tit. I got tired of bottle feeding him every day. I had a bag of first milk, 2cc's of draxon in him, 7-way shot with pinkeye, ear tag, bought a small bag of powder milk medicated for $40 at TSC to save him, hauling to the market. Everybody made money but me, I did save him though (probably came out ahead if he had died.) Take the sell bill out and if they are nice $100 each. If not real nice $50-$75 range. There is not as much money in 4-legged stocks as paper stocks.

They are angus sired crossbred, two and three weeks old. One is a twin momma only taking care of one got her on a bottle, other cow is old not giving much milk gonna pull him off and ship the old cow. Fixing to move to a new house we just built don’t have a good place to take care of them yet. They are pretty nice calves.
