The father of the guy that runs one of the local sale barns here told me killer cows brought 2$ lb recently.
"Yikes", was all I could say.
I don't keep up with markets much, but I never got that much for one.
I can't swallow that load of BS. No way kill cows brought $2 per lb.

Read up a few posts. He corrected his typo. They were selling kills for $1.00 a pound.

Cattlemen in shock over cattle prices
There continues to be a “mind-
separation” from reality regarding the high price of cattle. We cattlemen ease around each other, secretly not believing we just sold 13 heifers weighing 480 pounds for $840 each. Or sold a cull bull weighing 1,605 for 74 cents a pound. He brought $1,200. Or sold 600 weight steers for over $1,000 apiece, or bought 20 bred first-calf heifers for $1,680 each.
It is the happiest coffee shop table talk I’ve heard since the Osama went down! The most common comment, said with a sideways grin and the shake of the head that I hear is, “Man, I can’t believe it!”

Cattle imports decline in 2013, imports show strong growth
Updated: 02/14/2014
U.S. cattle imports in 2013 totaled 2.028 million head, a decline of 11.2 percent from 2012. Imports fell due to slowing shipments from Mexico (-32.6 percent), despite higher shipments from Canada (+27.5 percent).
Beef exports show strong growth, imports moderately higher in 2014
U.S. beef exports rose 5 percent in 2013 to 2.583 billion pounds.

They have a little ear

Because they have ear they arent a true baldy? :lol2:

I always thought a true baldie was angus/Hereford, no ear

Thats what it says if you google it. Sounds like marketing bs.

1/2 and 1/2 is 1/4 too much Herford. Replace that 1/4 with some Brahma if you want some mommas. :hide:

That's what I've always heard that cross called. Hereford bull X Brangus cows.

Looks like this bunch sold--asking price was $1600--"negotiable"--maybe he got $1600--maybe not.

Seen them bring more than that. Heck I paid more than that for one from a little 4H girl and thought I am out of my mind.
Looking what is out there the cow is in line with current pricing. I gave 1800 for this heifer last spring.
It is a commercial 4H FFA show and she is halter broke, hate to see what I might bring home in April when I go to the commercial show and sale. The Mrs. is going this year that always cost me extra she bought a Brangus 20 years ago cause most of the buyers had left and the little girl was crying. She had drawn the last spot in the sale and it was only us and two other buyers left. Those tears cost me 2000 dollars.
If I remember right my wife made sure she brought close to top dollar. I started the bidding and she bid, I said you know you are bidding against me and it is the same checkbook. She said yep I bowed out and she kept raising the bid. I sat there and bit my bottom lip until she finished.

Brahma might be fine for S Texas, but in S Dakota our winters would soon fix those Brahma ears! :hide:

I've often wondered how the offspring of a 1/2 Herford X Gelbvieh Balancer (1/2 Angus X 1/2 Gelbvieh) baldy cow bred to a Charolais bull would turn out. :idea:

My personal all time favorite is a black baldy bred Char. Purdy! :nod:
