Went for a drive.

Post by gcreekrch » Thu Jun 27, 2019 2:49 pm

Took some cull bulls to the Kamloops sale as I didn’t want to feed them another 3 weeks until the next Williams Lake sale. Two bulls weighed 1685 and brought .97 and an older bull weighed 1930 for the same money.
Bought 5 heifer pairs for a back haul. They cost $1950. Will get some photos.

Picked up parts at the JD store, locked myself out of the truck once, waited for two accidents to be cleared and had lots of good visits. Got in at 1 am this morning.

Glad to escape the rat race unscathed!

dont' know if he'd qualify as exotic, but he's closing in on 2500 lbs and in really nice shape.

My steer really pizzed me off yesterday.. I think he just shortened his life expectancy.
