You're definately not an idiot. If people would take care of their animals like you and I do, the sale barn could be an excellent place to buy.
The sale barn does have a purpose. It is a valuable part of our industry.
I have sold a few good cattle at the sale barn as have others.
I would be very careful however, about buying at the sale barn. Everyone does not take care of their cattle like you...
