Bought 2 registered cows

Post by elkwc » Sat Sep 21, 2019 9:53 pm

There was a special cow sale today about 90 miles away. One registered breeder consigned 6 young registered cows. 4 heifers 3of them bred. And 3 carrying their 2nd calf. All sired by a son of Denver. And bred to an son of GAR Sunrise. I decided they would sell well so would just watch on the computer. The sound wasn't working well. But bought 2 of them for $1,300 each. Wish I had bought 2 more.
I only watched a few sell after mine then drove up to get them. What I saw sell pairs sold very well. 2,000-2,400. But breds sold worth the money I feel. The highest I saw any commercial breds bring was 1,200 for 3-5 y/o's of top quality. At least at this sale breds were a lot softer than last fall.
Both I bought are granddaughters of Denver and should calve in late Jan to mid Feb.
What prices are others seeing. If the sound had been working I would of bought 4 of them.

Thanks. I'm very satisfied. Both had Discovery calves. One heifer calf and one bull. The breeder is retaining the heifer and a breeder bought the bull calf on the cow and took him when he was weaned.
