Subject: RE: Livestock auction rant?

western iowa,by Denison
i buy lots of calves off the ranch-not many sell by the head-a lot of sellers want more then they bring at the sale barn-its got to be a 2 way street

I could pick 2-5 head out of every bunch that will not meet uniformity

we have bought around 40% of the calves by the head this year,i paid to much,the rancher is happy-I would rather feed a to high dollar calf they feed a cheaper 6-7wt calf

usually harder to start backround weaned calves then to start bawling calves,really like the no creep feeder calves,and once there over 600# seems there is no profit left

I'm just a cattle feeder-I would guess that the cowman will just bypass the cattle feeder in 10 years and just feed them out himself-its really easy work, compared to running cows.
