Yeah, I think $500 was a bit high for that calf. But, we knew where she came from and the bull that sired her. Plus, like you just mentioned, there might not have been on at the sale today. And, I gave way too much for those two half Jersey heifers, too. But, she had called me to carry them to the sale for her, and I knew how much she lacked paying for her husband's funeral, and they were not gonna come near that at the sale. This philanthropy stuff is gonna bankrupt me!@farmerjan last two posts are spot on.
Better listen! I couldn't say it any better for sure.
Mastitis is nasty stuff. Got to have at least one extra calf per cow. That's why I get them early and bottle em for a few days or a week or two if I have to. When u need a calf, u need it NOW! Ain't no time to be running around looking everywhere only to be disappointed no one has one. At any price!
No way will I pay more than 300 for a GOOD BEEF CALF. And at 300 it better be PERFECT!
