    Seriously Considering Selling the Cows

    Trouble with financing it in this part of the country is first thing they do is remove every tree, fence and most buildings to farm it. Five years later when that fails, you get your farm back. No equipment, nobody wants a gutted farm, and you're worse off than you were before. Saw it happen...

    Seriously Considering Selling the Cows

    But I don't want more real-estate! Want the headaches to go away. Got houses to live in, don't wanna raise cows anymore. I just wanna spend the equity I spent a lifetime building. I'm willing to pour it back into the economy. LOL!!! Just not in the form of taxes.

    Seriously Considering Selling the Cows

    Have my 100 head leased on a 60 40 deal. I supply grass, hay ground,, taxes and insurance. He pays everything else for the 60% gross. Would like to sell out. How do you handle taxes? Would give at least half to government.

    Chiggers.......

    I, personally, have never been bitten by a chigger or mosquito. My friends are beating and scratching mosquitoes and scratching chiggers, I've always wondered what it feels like. Of course, they just cuss me.

    Wagyu...

    If your gonna sell wagu calves, you gotta have an outlet for them. Your talking a 50 cent or more dock at the local sale barn. Research Circle A and see what their offering. Buying a wagu bull, and just crossing some angus will fail miserably. GS

    Marbling...how much should you care?

    As someone that has fed their own stock, remember that there is a grid for all cattle. Want a premium for select? Breed for that. Carcass. Want prime, breed for it. That's where it's good to have an order buyer that knows your calves. He will buy them for the correct freeder. Or he can also...
