The man I bought the 80 Brahmas for, wants another 50 or more. He really like the black hereford calves that some of them had, and wants to breed some more. He also saw the bulls we used on the Corr herd last month, and wants to try his hand at creating some of them. so he wants some more Brahmas to breed to Chi-angus and Black Simmental, and use them for creating " CHi-Brangus" and " Black Simbrah". I am finding good Brahma cows are a lot more now than a few months ago when I found the 80 heifers. He is looking at $2500 and up. Gonna be hard to find that many open right now...most will be pairs or heavy bred about to calve. Scott's brother whose bulls we used, has been developing his crosses for a while, and offered to sell him 10 Br x ChiAng cows bred to a black Simm, and 10 br x black Simm bred to a Chi-Angus, which would save my client a year of cross breeding, and he agreed to buy them. They will all be pairs by the time we get them, they are calving now. So, I just need to find 30 Brahmas. I can tell I am getting old, because until here lately I enjoyed the hell out of these projects. Now I almost dread it. The countless hours on the phone and computer, and the trips to go check some out. I want to go fishing like most sensible retired people do! But, these trades I have made the past year has enabled me to pay a nearly $200k hospital bill from last summer's heart trouble. The deal we worked on these is I buy them as cheap as I can and he pays me $100 a head, so I can make $5k. I think after this I am done. The only other thing I have left for this client, is getting him 3 cow horses, and coming down to work cows with him a couple times to show them how to use them. That is fun, though, not work.

Anyhow, y;all see ads for Brahmas shoot them to me, or if you know of breeders in the south send me their info.
 
Try Butler Brahmans in Mt Vernon, Tx. His website was down but I know he has a Facebook page. I know it's a long hual for you.

Here's around 900 Brahman and Brahman crosses being sold in Texas.


There are a couple Brahman sales in MS next month coming up too. Not sure if catalogs are out yet. Deep South Brahman and Southern Classic sales.

How far from this sale do yo live, Fence?
 
Shoot, come to think of it I may have a fella with 3-4 brahma cows/heifers he needs to lose near Austin, but it'd take money up front and I've met his girls and I wouldn't work them on foot, them girls didn't exactly want to be my friend.
 
I got people within an hour or so but money would have to be fronted.
Tomorrow I am calling them to see what info on those I can get, find out if they have video yet. Find out when those cows will get there. Register to bid online or by phone, etc. The client will set up a line of credit with them. I just rather, if possible, have someone I trust to put eyes on them as well. Did I go through or close to Caldwell when I went to Elpaso? Seems like I remember seeing it. Does I-20 run close to it?

LOL. That's ok, I never get around a cow on foot. Always horseback. Find out what he has and how much. Might be that we could use them too. Never know. How far do you live form Caldwell.
 
Brute and Caustic live quite a ways from Caldwell. Brute is in far SE Tx and Caustic over near the Tx/La state line in East Texas.

CT member 1982vette lives in or right outside Caldwell Tx. That's Burleson County.

RafterS is down near Navasota.

(I used to live there, back in the days of the early-mid 80s Austin Chalk drilling boom.)

CT member Rockdale is about 35 miles NW 0f Caldwell.

The rest of us (and more) live pretty far from Caldwell. (locations are 'approximate' )
