Fielding Calls and Messages

The Husband and I always have the hardest time selling our bulls. Mainly because no one outside the immediate area really know who we are. We're just a small operation compared to the big time breeders. So we get frustrated when we have a great calf or young bull but can't get a buyer.

Well, about a week ago, i asked the husband if I should make a Facebook page for our bulls. At least that way, we would have a specific spot to showcase videos and pictures. He said why not so I set it up. Late yesterday, I uploaded some videos of our bull calves. HOLY SMOKES! We had about 100 new people like our page in a few hours! Then our phone and email started blowing up. People calling to inquire on their prices. The husband would be on one call and he'd have three messages waiting. I was answering emails and messages on Facebook. We finally had to stop and go to bed.

This morning I continued to answer emails. I text the husband at work and asked if he was still getting calls. He had been in meetings and he said his phone had been blowing up. With all that said, we haven't officially sold anything yet. But at least people are interested. I have to think that all of this will lead to some buying. Fingers crossed.

We were also interviewed yesterday for an article. I'll be sure to post it if it's any good.

Nope, we raise them to sell them.
