pt756 Posted February 21, 2019 Share Posted February 21, 2019 hello troy, so our neighbor came from Indiana, he left 10 years ago and moved here 50 cows, he told me the other day his brother in ind. sold it all, 80 acres , 10 year old free stall barn and 5 year old parlor 1.3 million. I don't know good price or not,going to Missouri to raise chickens now. then then I asked what about cows had about 120, said best offer was 800 a piece, buyer did give him a 1000, then I asked him why all these herds from far away being sold at priemer, he goes there a lot, claims that south Dakota herd was turned down by several sale barns, so they make the 3 state trip, he claims that their are still better prices around here. went to our local coop annual meeting a week ago pretty gloomy situation, accts high, then manager said well some are just not going to get credit this spring to plant. crops in storage but people unwilling to sell at these prices, and comparing pay prices the last week my 400 cow friends did not get any better than the smaller guys, all the goodies are gone, big volume premiums .they use to always do a dollar or better then us previously , we all ended up with about 15 to 16 a cwt depending on components, 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
