At $2 for 6 months (180 days X $2 = $360), and if you have no pasture at home and have to buy hay the other 6 months, one cow eating 30 pounds a day or about 3.75 1500 pound bales at $50 a bale = $187.5. Total cost is $547.5, take that out of the $900 calf and your still left with $352.5. Thats alot of room for minerals and other things.Im not sure what all the care intails and I know prices will not be this good for ever but could be a option for the next couple years.
