DiamondCattleCo said:The question is, How much did they really pay for the 190,000 heifer? Last Year there was a bull that was already purchased for 25k. A real good friend of mine was one of the ones who bought interest. They ran him through an auction and he sold for 40k. he really only sold for 25k. its a you scratch ,my back, I scratch yours. I also know of a 20k+ heifer that only sold for 5k or 6k+ but made good publicity for the bull. I would venture to guess the heifer truly didnt sell for 190,000. JMO

Quick fire said:I know the two bidders who were on her and who sold her. Although I am always extremely hesitant to say "it was real" I feel like if was. But there are TONS of cattle that sell for 10k+++ that is legit....
Oh I know I wasn't trying to say you were being pessimistic or anything at all. I was just adding what info I knew.3dfarms said:Quick fire said:I know the two bidders who were on her and who sold her.

I wasn't saying they aren't real money, however in my experience on big money cattle their is some discussion prior to the sale and some agreement in place as to what happens after the sale. It's not just about someone writing a check. Again I'm thrilled for the Hartman crew and everyone involved on this great female and on the bull as well. I think bigger things are coming for him.
