Registered Braunvieh Cows/Pair for Sale on the Diamond H Ranch
Weather has definitely changed a lot around this part of the world, changes that, have in some ways, changed the way we raise cattle on the Diamond H. Truth is, I think it has made us better. In the past years we have culled and culled and culled. Not just for the normal reasons like fertility or attitude. In the first part of the drought, we took upwards of 100 bred females to the packing plant. (I gotta tell ya, at times it got pretty difficult….downright depressing). No one else had a place for them either. Lots of ranches were forced to quit….. 100 year old ranches. With God’s encouragement, we pressed forward (sometimes against our better judgement). We leased some land, bought a little more. We are still doing all we can to grow the herd. But the weather is STILL not cooperating! We had a very dry summer while those within 20 miles caught lots of rain. We grew very little grass…..Therefore, we will be selling more females that we had planned.
Yes, I know I need to have photos, etc on this website so you can see what we have. But truth is, I am having trouble getting all I need to get done….done. SO…..We will sell pretty much anything you want to buy with very few exceptions. Sure donors are pricy, but as I said, what we have left are good cows. They will be priced according to age, pedigree, history of performance, etc. When I get a breath, I’ll post some pictures. In the meantime, tell me what you are looking for, I’ll send pictures of whatever (if anything) I think might work.
We put together this video about the value of a female. If you have some time, it might be interesting. Which leads me to say…I know your time is valuable, all of us are in that boat. So let me sincerely say thanks for taking the time to give us a look….I don’t take it for granted.
And folks, never forget, regardless of life’s challenges, problems, and shortcomings….we live in the best country in the world (there is no doubt of that statement) and are blessed to be part of one of the best occupations in business. AND we have a very good, kind and loving God. Regardless of your position on that last part….life is good!
Blessings from the Hill’s….Karra and Todd
