Have any of you noticed that you can look and look for an animal you want and there is nothing. And then you do find some that are so high you think they must milk themselves. I have been on the Jersey lookout off and on a while now. I noticed some that are 8 yrs old unregistered for $1500!!! Then you find some that are 5 or 6 for $800. Why is that? Both ads will read halter trained and a good cow but that is almost double! It's crazy! Are people just money hungry or is th animals really that much better? I have found some first time heifers for $800 and then one that's a second timer for the same but then I see 1200, 1500 and think my what's the difference?? Any idea? I've finally just decided to call some dairies and call about their old cows as they can go for about 500 and I just don't really have a whole lot more than that to spend. I did find one guy who has a first timer who will take 500 and the calf the cow will deliver when it's weaned plus 100 which equals about 900 or so. And she ain't even TAME!!! My my my! Almost think it would pay to get out of the angus cows and go to the dairy cows! Sorry didn't mean to rant but I'm just amazed!
