We would be but as above the thread is not about sale price but costs and if they are necessary.Agree with you on that.we bought a bull last year that the breeder had sold to a guy.who then sent him back as he'd had him tested an said he was infertile.I took a chance ,every cow in calf .
Plenty people will sell bulls cheap.just bought one for 2k would of been more but he's ripped his nose ring out.also chance at a good limmy bull for 2k but I've no room for it.
Are the breeders making money at that? I very much doubt it.
It seems to me that there are a lot of parasites that feed of farmers as they sell goods/services that are not necessarily.
Looking at the way things are likely to tighten up given the way things are going (loss of subs being the main one) then these unnecessary costs need to be cut out
