I am so thoroughly disgusted by seeing absolute beginners being scammed. On a FB cattle page, had a conversation with an older lady who gave $2400 for a “Mini” Beltie pair with a BCS of 1-2 on both the cow and calf. Her neighbor recommended a “reputable” rancher, who then sold her this unregistered pair-combined weight maybe 900 lbs. she said “he told me he wormed the and the vet said they were healthy”. Of course, her son picked them up for her, probably didn’t know to say no. Scruples are gone in so many places.
