Look good. What they cost?

I ask em to cut one smaller framed cow and her calf out.
Paid 1350.00 on the big girls. Then ended up winning the smaller pair 1225.00.
Calves and bred back to a horned bull.


That is pretty high up on hog in my book.

6wt calves are bringing 8-900 (avg steers and heifers) you've got 4-500 in the cows
Next spring those cows will be worth 1000-1200 ?
I'd take all I could at that

Those are some nice looking cows, that's for sure. I don't think you could swing them here for that price.

Went to buy skinny old cows to put on oats till spring and flip.

Ended up with four Hereford 3&1s..
Third calves beside em .



3 in 1's for $1350 I estimate the calves are worth $525 each
Leaving 4 bred cows 4 1/2 yrs old for $825 hd

Cows all appear healthy, I don't see anything wrong with the purchase and if you like herefords a good buy.

My guess is Burno thought you paid $1350 for bred cows and did not realize you meant $1350 for bred cow/calf pairs.

High up on the hog means you did good in this neck of the woods.
