MIKE I KNOW WHAT YOUR SAYING ABOUT HOW PRODUCTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN NAMES, AND FOR MY FARM I AGREE FOR MY BUCKS BUT....


*


I WAS VERY SURPRISED AT HOW WELL GLADIATOR XTREME DID IN SEMEN SALES ON PEDIGREE ALONE, *HIS LEG WAS IN BAD SHAPE HE GREW MORE TRASH AND LESS WIDE *HE SCORED 207"@2 BUT HE WASNT PRETTY AND ILL BE THE FIRST TO ADMIT IT BUT UP TILL YESTERDAY HE BROUGHT ME IN $14,500 IN SEMEN AND I HAVE A FEW MORE INTERESTED THAT ARE TO LET ME KNOW THIS WEEK


*


I'LL TAKE THAT EVERY YEAR (ALTHOUGH I WONT BUDGET FOR THAT TO HAPPEN NOT AT ALL CAUSE I GOT LUCKY) *THAT PAYS FOR MY FEED BILL TO FEED ALL MY ANIMALS AND THEN SHOOTERS ARE 100% PROFIT, WITH RESULTS LIKE THAT I CAN KEEP MY HEAD ABOVE WATER




I see the straws you have on the exchange for the last week or so!. *The exchange is a pretty good tool to see what gets bids on and what the average farmer is going to pay for a straw of average semen. There are some pretty strong names in some of those straws that are offered for 100.00 with no bids.?


*


14.500 is cool. You just drew him like a week ago and have sold 19 straws at 750.00 for 14,250 without selling any off of the exchange?

No whitetail exchange has not done very well for us. We did sell a straw on exchange for $1,000. But the semen market is in Texas and many amish and mennonite *not whitetail exchange. And very few Texans are on the exchange unfortunately But none the less I have sold 24 straws for 14,500 before square reader fees at various prices. 17 of those were paid for long before we drew him. I also gave away 3 straws for free in guess the score contests. *We have tried to move some straws on exchange the past week by lowering starting price. We'll see if it works


Facebook is a tool that is very valuable. And like I said before no fees

I guess that's what we all need to do. If you sold that many straws in the Powerful Texas breeding market with your buck then we all need to get drawn and get a page! Roger did you say you were going to draw Ruben? To sell from any buck to Texas that is not 25-30 inside with 25-30 inch beams is a tough proposition no doubt!

Mike You can make fun all you want. I know how many I sold and how many I transferred from Great Lakes. Sorry for being open


Wayne. My asking price is 750 but I'm all about making deals especially on multiples. But a majority sold for 750

No making fun on anything. Just hard pill to swallow with no bids on same straws in the exchange but selling like hot cakes in a state with some of the best bred deer in country. As you can see there are many bigger bucks with much stronger linage that can't get sold for even 500 let alone 750. But you know what if you sold them kudos to you. I would stop posting on the exchange though!

So you charge one person 750, and you give someone else a deal at 200?
