Hardly see any brahman heifers at an auction. Let alone this many. Hoping they dont bring in as a group or atleast if they do accept the request for choice. I cant afford them all.

Yeah, I am really just here looking for a jersey heifer to turn into a nurse cow. Those brahmans make me salivate.

If they are brining that through the yard (the picture may be unflattering, but they don't look like superior animals), what do they bring in an arms length transaction?

2K easy from a known source.

Yup, depending on how well they filled out and their age... it would not have been hard to get $2K. If I was in the trading business I would have snatched them up, put them in a 20x20 pen to mellow them out, then turned them out on grass. Might even put a bull on them and sell them as bred in the spring.

I've been looking at more straight brahman cattle than I care to remember the last couple months. Most places I went to their weaned heifers started out at $1800... weaned heifers... some registered some not. That was the bottom side of the group too. They were not show stoppers. If I saw what looked like a nice heifer you could be she was $2300+............ weaned heifers! :shock:

You would never see any here, if you did it would be at jersey/longhorn prices.

They had some open F-1 tigerstripe heifers in Carthage TN a couple weeks ago that weighed 950 bring $1400. I thought that was a pretty good price for this part of the country. Those straight Brahman heifers are worth more that you would think too. A buddy of mine sold a couple off the farm the other day for $1000 a head weighing 600.

Sounds like a moneymaker for someone.

At that price - - why don't they raise them and then truck them in to Texas from Mexico or Florida or wahtever?

I'm not following you. Why would we want to buy cattle from Mexico? I can't really think of any thing Mexico does better than the US. Seems like they would want our cattle more than we would want theirs.
