Its a hypthetical question merely. I was quoted a price on a weanling son of his..which is a tremendous tremendous weanling..but I wanted to see if the price I was quoted fit what his sons are bringing. I realize the weanlings dam plays into this as well..but simply trying to find out what range one might think a registered angus by New Design..who "looks" to be everything a bull should be, would go for, price wise. Not looking for replacement heifer sires or anything. Something that will sire calves with good gains for the freezer...so to speak. I understand that is where EPD's come into play. the question was general..I understand its hard to give an accurate figure on what you'd think would be a fair price..but Im glad afew folks took a shot at it..gives me an idea at least.
Im well aware of the risks of buying young stock..very true you run the risk of having a dud and being out money..but you can sometimes end up with something really good as well.. its a gamble for sure and something you've got to weigh.
