I have two young, open, cull cows (800 - 1000# each)that I have been feeding a mixture of good hay and a beef grain mixture - heavy to the grain. I am selling them to some friends and have no idea what to charge. I know what slaughter and packaging will cost. Can anyone tell me what I could get for these animals per pound? on the hoof and hanging weight?

I don't know were you are at but last friday packers cows were going for 35 - 50 cents and a few higher. If they will breed back and are solid mouthed you could get 600 or better. I live in Comanche county TX and these are some prices I have seen the last few weeks. Hope this helps.
