Bryant: What do you think he weighs now?kenny thomas":3gcbaihp said:Here i could probably buy him for .60 but would feed and sell him at 1000 lb for 1.25. Still not a bad profit.
BRYANT":fwuvgbs1 said:I sold him yesterday and he weighed 740 lbs. was on just a native grass pasture till the last 3 weeks then on a Bermuda grass. I had started feeding him grain 5 days ago. I just decided to sell him we do not eat that much beef.
I will say he brought better than what I thought he would, any more guesses before I tell what he brought. I will tell this after noon
I will have grass till late February I think, but feed the calves I sell for beef also. I can feed him for lots less than 1.25 a lb so he would make money even if it was on hay and feed.greybeard":8h0jzgv0 said:Bryant: What do you think he weighs now?kenny thomas":8h0jzgv0 said:Here i could probably buy him for .60 but would feed and sell him at 1000 lb for 1.25.

Kenny..I understand it's a hypothetical, but Do you think you can put the additional weight on him this time of year and still make profit?
(Had our first light frost this morning ..grass will be done by the end of this month here)
