i am surprised he isnt face deep in all that nice grass. i am no cowboy. got a few on here that are. i know they do better with company. might look for another to feed out. sell one to pay for both when fat.

If, I'm understanding what you paid for it, $50 cash plus 100 lbs. of feed plus 5 large round bales. I don't think you got a very good deal. Being a dairy crossed with a hereford at the local auctions around here, he would only bring about a third of the price as a full blooded beef steer.

Why sell him? Fatten him up for 12 months and butcher it. I raised Holstein calves for years for my own personal meat. You can't raise them as large as Angus but butchered on the smaller side and they are great meat.

5 bales of last years hay, plus the feed and cash seem about right. It doesn't look like a bottle calf. Probably cash equivalent to 250, that's a good deal.

How much would beef/holsteins be there? I have a truck and trailer...

Not just 50 cash

100 lbs winterizer feed and 5 large Round Bales

225.00 trade value

Still worth it

Your hay is cheap compared to around here, large round grass bales are $125 to $150 a piece here if you find anyone to sell them. Thatís for crap grass, I seen brome rounds bales go for $235 a piece on an auction last month. Most of our bales are 5X6ís maybe his are smaller also.

Most of the hay left here Is a year old and has sat outside for that year. It is not great quality this time of year

I'll feed 2 or 3 year old Grass hay to my beef anyway

An old time beef rancher told me that 15 years ago. Said it goes through them shower.

We can buy 6x6. 1,100lb bales for 30 or 40 bucks

local auction had fat cattle sell for 1.92 last week that makes a 1500 pound calf worth just shy of 3000 dollars
