If you are buying a pair, unless the calf is a newborn to 2 months old, the cow should be bred.
That's what someone meant when they advised for you to buy a 3 in 1 package. You buy a cow/calf pair and the cow is already bred back.
Open cows being sold are usually PROBLEM breeders.

Yall need to reread the first post. He is going out to some guy's place to buy a $550 Longhorn pair. While the cows may be running with the bull, at THAT price I doubt there will be any preg checking. I might ask for a guarantee that she is a breeder; but under the circumstances asking for a guarantee on the pregnancy is probably pushing it.

Agreed. I've bought quite a few pairs (some bred back) for between $590 and $725. Some are Herefords, Angus, some crossbreds, and one that I think is just a longhorn that was dehorned as a calf. $550 for a longhorn pair sounds about right.
