Old cow that i was planning to cull started limping recently.
Will the sale barn accept a slow moving old cow?

The ones around here will accept them as long as the animal can walk in on its own. Not sure about what would be considered '3-legged-lame' (only walking in on 3 legs).

You could call the market/barn that you plan to take her to and ask them.

She'll probably sell as a packer anyway but if she has a noticeable limp they'll definitely dock her. I'd wait and see if it would go away...may be something as simple as a bruise.
