Oh, I wish we were in the market for a cow but we're in no way prepared for that yet. Maybe someday...
May take me a few years before I am ready for cows...i'm still on step 1...chickens!
Around here several of the sale barns are having to turn away a lot of the cows come sale day. They don't have enough room to hold all of them. One of the guys here local said that if he had the room and the time, he could sell four or five times as many as he regularly does. One of the real mysteries is what with so many cows being sold, why is the price of beef in supermarkets not going down. Yeah right, like it is a big mystery, someone is making a large wind fall profit. !
Phew! I just spent the last couple of weeks reading all of your blog posts...what a roller-coaster! I am now up to date and in the present :) I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you and your family battle health issues and homestead struggles...looking forward to hearing more from you!
