Looks like with the great stock market now you are better to get out and buy some holstein heifer calves for $300-400 and raise them up to calving and collect your big bucks. At least in them you know you will get your money back plus some profit. I am in the great dairy state of wisconsin. What is everyone gonna do with there money. I have La Quinta Motel Chain

Every time i see them scurrying around at the Stock Market, it reminds me of the bookie pens at horsetracks in Melbourne. Waving, shouting, constantly changing prices, similar mess of worthless papers on the floor when it's done.
Gambling is gambling.

Heifer calves go for about $35 here ...... not that i'm buyin with no hay in sight. :)

Yep, the weather's kinda picky about scattering rain this year - we're in central Mn and it's either dried up or washed away - guess water is scarce in Italy this summer too, so it's nothing personal. :)

Yah right, go out and buy a bunch of those $400 heifer calves. than feed them for 2 years and get $450 for the same animal or if you had bad luck, pay $25-35 to have it hauled away to soap factory..

Well you must be from the city you aren't from wisconsin. Ill tell you what if you can find those for 450.00 2 years old i will take all you can find and all the farmers in wisconsin would like them them. If you go to a auction they will sell for three times 400.00 you are not very smart to live in the great dairy state. I just say some the other day for 1000 and up. So if you can find me all the heifers for 450.00 that are 2 years old.
Thanks for saving me 600.00 a cow for 2 year olds

well up here a 2 year old is a milking cow already. I would never buy a cow at any auction. All you do is drag home junk that is't needed in your barn!! After a animal is milking it is a COW and the value at the slaughter plant is not very good now because Mcdonald , burger king and wendys are getting a good share of their hambuger meat fron Brazil, new zealand and other places. There also is not too much good hay unless you want to take some of your earning from your flop house to feed the animals. I know now which hotel chain not to stop at..

Great dairy state,ya...right. Who you gonna get to buy those expensive critters and milk them for $10.00/cwt.There isn't very many dairy farmers left around here any more.

Unfortunately in our area (western Maryland) the last 3 nights the paper has run front page stories about horse or dairy farms who have lost their water wells and are just hanging in carrying buckets. Can't raise too much cattle without water.

But they keep building new houses, one on top of another. I guess all those people don't need any water.

oh well. To soon old, too late wise, right?
