My daughter and I are trying to convert over to mostly registered cattle. Brahmans. We sure like those ears and the hump. We are in the south, so they should do good. At the present we have 1 bull 2 cows , 1 yearly bull calf and 2 heifers. Watched a sale in the deep south on the computer they had a 11 month old heifer, fetched 12,000 a donor cow 10,500 others were 2500 + for yearly heifers. We went to a sale North of there 2 weeks later 1 yearly heifer got 9,900. Our commercial cattle prices now are pitiful. It doesn't cost anymore to feed good registered cattle and to get close to those prices, even if I have to drive a bit farther to the sale. Sometimes I think folks are trying to shut the little guy out of business.
