I have never personally purchased steers in Louisville but know of some deals over the years. Be sure the seller is reputable. For a couple of years (and several years ago) there were RUMORS flying around about doctored calves. Just do your homework on the seller. Be sure the seller can be 'found' if you have a problem. If you return a steer, get CASH, not a check. Hint.
I am taking a 'non fat and therefore will not show well' Shorthorn bull. He'll be easy to find....he'll be one of the thinnest bull in the barn. I thought it would be fun to see a bull that is what he is. I'm tired of hearing about Shorthorns being hard keepers, so this little guy has not been pushed. It's in genetic lines, not an entire breed. Wow, I didn't mean to get on a roll here!
I think the SP folks should get together and put a face on the name. I'll arrive on Wed. the 13th and leave Tues the 18th.
I wish you the best on finding a steer.
