Cattle For Sale

The time has come for us to say good-bye to our Dexters. :( They are a good bunch and frankly, they are great animals to start a homesteading/farming journey. We have attempted to sustain both houses and all the bills, new and old, plus all the animals for as long as we could but the reality is that we cannot continue to do so any longer. At this point our Dexters serve the least productive purpose and will be first up, Quinn will be next, though I will only be keeping him long enough to have Treva bred back after her baby is born. We are currently talking with a number of potential buyers, but market prices are not great at the moment or at least that's the impression I am getting. I hope the 2 brothers looking to get them all will, so that they can stay together but that might just be my maternal instinct not wanting them to be separated.
