Yes, I have some issues. Or rather some bones to pick. Things that have been tickin' me off. So much so I dreamed about it last night and didn't sleep worth a darn!
Shall we begin....
-Just because we don't have high priced well known breeding in our cattle, it doesn't make them less than yours! (We can't help that you don't know the greats of year's past! And that they made the "well knowns" of the present!)
-Don't ask for help when you know nothing about the industry, then argue your way is better.
-Give our bull recognition for his accomplishments, placing WAY over your high priced breeding. But no, you just brushed him off. (He placed 4th!! So proud of him!)
-Don't listen to our advice when we sold you the bulls. Telling you which ones would be the best ones for competition. You take the BEST one to the sale barn! But you keep your "popular" bred bulls that don't perform.
Yes, I get a little upset when people don't give our stock the recognition they deserve, when they deserve it. They are my babies. A lot of time and energy were spent with them. Can you tell my button has been pushed?
I have learned a lesson though. Don't sell bulls to people that want us to also "help" them. I just get mad seeing what they do with our guys. It is better for me to send them to contractors that know what the heck they are doing or to someone we don't know at all. So then we will never be involved later. Best I don't know if you screw the bull up.
Okay, now that I have that off my chest, there is always a new crop coming up. This guys is actually a year old now. Our good friend bought him yesterday, along with a couple others. The same guy that had all those awesome bulls and heifers! Don't have to worry about them. They have a good home.
