    Our neighbor was loading cattle this evening and one of his 700 lbs heifers broke her neck between the chute and the trailer. His wife came over and asked if we wanted what they didn't. All that they are taking is the tenderloin and one of the rear quarters!!!!! :hobbyhors This will help in the meat department tremendously. :dance:

    Wow, what nice neighbors you have! It sounds like a minimal-suffering death for the heifer, too, though I imagine your neighbor was pretty upset when it happened. Hope it wasn't too much an economic hit for them and that none of the other heifers were damaged in the incident. I understand there's been drought-related problems with raising beef in Oklahoma this year, so its gotta be extra hard to make ends meet right now.
