Not a bad price at all. I would have been pleased as well.

Missed them, really? We band calves a whole lot bigger than that. We were the first one in our area to buy a bander and when we went to brandings, hubby would be asked to bring ours along. Now most places have ones of their own. The largest thing I have ever seen banded was a 1200 pound long yearling bull. He did just fine.

$52.00 for a cow? I would not complain. They are going for $38.00-$42.00 around here for butcher cows and they better be fat enough to grade.
