It is getting to be that time of year. The time to start buying show goats for Okies & Texans. I’m really not in the mood to start, but I better get that way. I’ve looked at a few sets. Might have even bought a set or two already, but you’ve got to move quick because somebody else will. I don’t like buying when they are 4 weeks old, but you do what you’ve got to do. I need to look at some more goats later this week.
I’ve been studying the calendar, trying to figure out which sales weekends in Texas I can make. You have to maximize which sales/farms will have the best goats at the right prices combined with how it fits into a work schedule at home. Balancing that with a couple of Oklahoma sale dates and when I am going to sell the goats that already reside at my house. I look at some of these and think I might just stay home and feed these. It would be a heck of a lot easier to just have a couple for my own kid and be done.
