You ought to see this place...Its spitting distance from the other new one that looked huge when they were the only ones sitting there. This new guy has so much hate for the other two guys he's willing to sink in all of what he has, he doesn't care if he makes money. There is no way to ink it out that he'll ever make money, its all for spite...kenny thomas":327qwjr2 said:Normally when a new sale comes along it does great the first sale as advertisement.
After that is the commission savings worth more than a price difference that might occur. Somehow they are getting paid, it takes a lot of money to run a yard.
We use many sale barns from all around. I don't really care which one we use. They've all made us happy, they've all made us mad. The reason i'm going to work harder to take as few as possible to the sale....But since its our source of income, if someone is going to forgo the commission, i'm in. Its just the looming thought that maybe they wont have the buyers and it evens out.... things tend to even out..jedstivers":m1p1hacg said:If you are happy where you have been selling and they do you a good job why consider leaving them. Loyalty means a lot.
If your not happy then try them out.
I have other places I could sell but the commission co I use at Oklahoma national goes above and beyond on service. No way I'm leaving them.
Exactly.... the future one is, i'm not kidding, spitting distance to the last new one.slick4591":e4u5zdpv said:New one? I thought they just built a second one a few years ago. How many can that part of the country support?
They are going with Wed and Sat.... its crazy....He's not in it for the money.RanchMan90":2w0u92u1 said:It would have to be on Thursday not to have a conflicting schedule with other sales on that circuit.
Exactly.... I've had a beef with every barn (around 6) we've used over the 30 years we've been in this area, some with satisfactory results, some that left a burr under my saddle...JSCATTLE":ifc7fa0g said:I'd take advantage of the no commission of he could prove he had buyers coming. I'm in business to make money. I'm not loyal to anyone because no one will be loyal to me when it comes to money.
I don't know.....i'm sure someone has the answer, but I've only heard he's doing it out of spite..jedstivers":2hvjimcx said:Oh yeah, a question
Why does the one guy hate the others and what does he do to be able to support a loosing barn if it comes to that?
Well, you hear everything but the truth. Bet there's more to it or he'll soon be out of business. Barns that size aren't cheap. Will take a huge amount of money to keep one running that's loosing money.cowgirl8":36ndjc9p said:
