You could not be more correct. I pass by pastures all the time and it's amazing how much money is standing out there. I am building a decent herd myself.

Not sure what the exact going rate for cattle are right now, but I tend to just multiply them by $3,000 when I see a group of them to estimate their gross worth.

I have seen more cattle in pastures between post and Roswell this spring than ever before. We also have notice more bull haulers on the road headed east than in the last 5 years.

Yeah, Im really debating our our latest calf we steered out to put in the freezer. He is probably 350 lbs right now. Going to be some good eating but he sure would bring a lot of money, lol.

My buddy just bought a bunch of all black heifers. $1750 a head.

I offered $500 for every calf that hits the ground. Never heard back from him.

Just curious, how much is a round bale of coastal (nothing too fancy, doesn't have to be horse quality) going for these days? How many of y'all are even feeding hay now that the spring green-up has begun? I remember paying $100 a bale, maybe over $10 per square bale, back in the late 2000s, before my dad's family sold our ranch out from under us.

Good horse quality square bales are about $7.00ea right now. Descent fertilized coastal is going for around $50.00 a bale.
