Sounds to me like a pretty good deal. Lots of questions to be answered but After 5 or 6 years you probably know what to ask and what to look for.

show her the math. The calves should sell for close to that when you ship them.

No, don't do like me and remember all the questions on the way home. "Write em down before you go there." Don't ask me why I know that. LOL LOL

If you are going to buy them don't tell us here. One of us could swoop down there Monday with a stock trailer and a $7g wad and drive home while you are still negotiating with your wife. Of course, I would not think of doing such a thing :cboy:

If I wasn't 782 miles away it would look good. Any way if you don't buy them maybe I could get my wife to change the Gulf Shores trip around a little and take the stock trailor to the beach and alter the return trip a little. Y'all think she would go for that :lol2: ?

Go see them DB and go with your gut, if you like them get them. Good luck ,I hope you have found what you are looking for.. :)

Oh, but don't take my advice I charge my cattle for being here and I kept an RA cow that wouldn't even raise her own calves and paid for her calf out of my own pocket.. :lol2:

I can hear it now. All this money you're wanting to spend on cows, blah, blah, blah.

Sounds like a bribe is in order... :roll:

Couple of things to consider. If he has truly lost a lease where has he been keeping them for 2 months? If there are cattle traders there like here, and I am sure there are some, why have they not been bought if they are a bargin? Here a bargin on cattle last 2 hours instead of 2 months.

Yea like the $500 hunting dog I brought back from South Dakota last year that has cost me over $1500 in bribes so far. Once you start paying those bribes it never ends.

I think I agree with the wife on this one. This looks like a sure deal; BUT you really don't want to be investing the emergency fund. If you got the funds to invest that is one thing. If doing a deal takes you down to your last $500, don't invest just hold.

LOL serves you guys right.. :lol2:

DB do not drain your savings for cattle, you would be better off giving it to Madoff. Livestock can lead to dead stock, you could bring them home and they could be dead in a week . Never gamble with your savings you never know when an emergency will come up and it keeps your family with heat ,power a full belly and a roof over their heads.
If I were you I would start a cattle jar, cutback on a few things that you sometimes splurge on and put the money in the jar instead. You will be surprised at how fast the jar fills ( don't let the wife pilfer the jar though).

willing to sell singles. said i could have 7 for 5000. not pairs tho. booo

so....im thinkin thats too much. i need to get em for 600-650. if not proven bred already.

he says theyre heavy bred so they should be coming right. so other than a visual i gotta take his word for it. i doubt ill have anything from a vet to show .

or i offer him 750 for 6 pairs...gets me off the hook for bred hiefers that way too.. and if i pick pairs with hiefers i can bred em from my bull in 2 yrs or so....

whattya yall think..do i have a clue.

he keeps tellin me he need to so something cuz hes running outta grass...but he aint makin me no great deals...says theyre eating up his hayfield so he needs to move em..
