Message Title: buying a ranch with elk heard

Here we go again with another breeder trying to compensate for the reality that there is a huge glut of mature bulls. That being the case, many ranchers have to decide between losing $1 per day to feed them or cut their losses and reduce the herd.
Nobody said, not once that this was an enjoyable market. What we did say is that there are more elk for sale than there are buyers so, it is a great time to be buying.
If you can find buyers at a higher price, more power to you. But for every guy grousing about the low prices being paid for mature bulls, there are 50 who would kill to sell a bunch of bulls for $1,500 each.
That is reality.
