How are prices where you are?
We sent some on Monday and are happy with prices.

Steers bringing anywhere from $1.15 - $1.33lb. Heifers a little less. I sold one 500 pounder that brought $1.23lb. Not too bad.
Were just hobby ranchers though. Only run around 225 commercial bred cows. Small scale.

I saw a couple cattlemen in WYO a couple years back. I knew they were cattlemen because they were riding side by side BS'ing and about 200-300yds infront of them their border collies were driving the heard to the truck and trailer. LOL Work smarter not harder.

Located in South Quebec. We have a 600 head feedlot (all inside on slotted floors and liquid manure). We also milk over three hundred Holstein dairy cows. We crop around 3000 acres (hay, corn, soya, barley, wheat, cranberry beans). Just starting preparing the fields to plant corn, whoo-hoo

Have a 50 acre ranch out in Aubrey, Texas. Grandpa has built it from the ground up. He used to train race horses back in the day. Was dam good at it. All my family is into horses at some point. Reining, cutting/sorting/barrel racing/ ropin...all of it. The ranch is up for sale and I hate to see it go. I grew up on that ranch and know every inch of it. I think its funny to see retards that have never rode a horse before get on one and think they know everything...they last about 10 mins at the most before the get a lil flying lesson :evil. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COW HAULER & RANCHER....EAT BEEF!
