That's easy to find out because the owner of the cows just lives on the other side of the county and is easily accessible. The breeder of the bull is a friend of mine and we probably see each other every couple of weeks. I know someone brought up the sale barn, only these calves came from a private treaty sale. We looked at them about three months ago and Sam closed the deal shortly after that.
Two things I'm getting out of the dialog is low birth weight and keeping them black, which is what I'm going to help him do. If the right GV bull is not available then BA is a real possibility. The last thing I want for my buddy is calving problems.
