But the heifer I just bought cost me 300.
Now I couldnt make the sale, had a buyer get it for me.
Most I've seen worth bringing home are gonna be 200plus. Usually 300. Depends how many people are there that day looking for baby calves.
I've also seen folks get all worked up and seen em sell as high as 425 recently. Craziness!!
Idk wth a person does with a 425 dollar bottle calf....
Be hard to turn any kind of profit, especially considering milk replacer costs, unless it was going on a cow. And even then, its probly a loss.
Very good advice. The traders love to see someone new there. Fresh Meat if the calf happens to be theirs.MurraysMutts said:I didnt buy anything at my first few sales. I OBSERVED...
Scrutinized the situation, as my ol math teacher told us over and over.
Theres a lot to take in.
Let us know how ya get on?
