Went to a c/cf and bred cow sale last eve. Prices were as good or better than I've seen. Most were supposed to be in the 5-8 yr range and about 20 bred heifers
Blks/cfs: 6 groups of 2 & 3 mostly 1300 to 1725. Couple blks w char cfs 935. Singles were all over the place Char w blk nose cfs 9-950; most blk w/blk cfs 900-1500; coupl odd ones 500
Bred blks; most 7 months 1400-1600; 5-6 months couple in the 9-1000; most 12-1400; short bred 1-4 months 700-900. Couple odd ones 700-900.
Bred heifers all blks: 2 were 4-5 mos 1100, rest were 7 mos 12-1325.
2 bulls,sim/angus 1500 & 1595 lbs brought 2600 each. Semen tested
2 younger angus bulls 1205 & 1245 1500 & 1800 each.

Bought 1 char c/hfr cf for 910 and one longhorn c/hfr cf for 485. Both had nicer calves and cows could use a little weight. Couldn't pass up the longhorn at that price, even with no market here for them. See how she does.

Was at a feeder sale yesterday that someone brought in 6 shorthorns, 4 2nd calf cows went for $900 a piece, 1 1st calf heifer brought $850, and a couple year old cow brought 800. All bred 6 months. Nice looking cows, definitely front pasture material. Very hard to pass on them.

Sale in Va was at Shenandoah Valley Livestock Mkt in Harrisonburg Va.. It was advertised and they were preg checked and the results of the bulls fertility tests all in a printed flier. There were a couple off colored cows, couple reds, couple herefords, that brought 2-300 less than the blacks. BIG difference from 2 years ago.
