Thanks for posting. Sorry for the outcome. We all learn from our own mistakes and everyone elses in the fraternity/sorority of cattle raising who posts here. When you get your tail twisted, its usually a good thing. It just doesn't feel that way at the time.

Ok this is my opinion! You guys did not have to be so ruff and ljv if you have been on here you can see they get ruff and opinionated at times. Just remember they started out once as well and they have probably forgotten that. It took guts to ask these guys a few things since you see how they answer others.

Keep coming back and maybe you as well as I and others can learn from all of our mistakes.

Good Luck on your next one!


Opinon's are just like buttholes everyone has one and they all stink.
This is a rough business and if you want to survive toughen up,
I bet old IV doesn't make that mistake again They have no one to blame but themselves have to learn to be responsible for your actions and outcomes 600 dollar lesson is a good teacher. Time to move on that calf is worm or coyote food now.


yep tough business. Just too bad there's too many jerks on here to actually give advice that helps. Thankful I don't have to come here for my advice. Just my entertainment.
