We’re all about the ‘brown envelopes’, we only purchase stock at the mart and drive around in 181 transport! Check out this week’s 10 myths!

This week, we are back to dispel myths about cattle purchasers!

  1. We only purchase cattle in the mart!

You couldn’t forget about those hefty private ‘country’ sales now either!

  1. We only give pennies for stock!

Market value, now fair is fair! We will give whatever we are able to give!

  1. We’re complete strangers!

Everyone knows us by our full name and our ‘pedigree’ like the back of their hand; celebrities of the farming world, I hear you say!

  1. We haven’t a bull’s notion when it comes to the quality of livestock!

We can tell the difference between a R+ and a U- with a single glance. We have mastered the identification of all breeds to know the difference between a Charolais and a Blonde and an Aubrac and a Parthenaise!

  1. We’re out to rim everyone!

While we like quality cheap as opposed to cheap quality, we still understand that everyone has to make a living. It’s important to note that there has to be something out of the deal for us too!

  1. We don’t know the tricks of the trade!

Masters of our craft – we know every trick in the book!

  1. We all arrive in flash 181 transport that has just rolled out of the garage.

You can’t beat a pick-up truck – sure the new 181 doesn’t ever have a towbar. They weren’t made for hauling a load of 950kg cull cows, I tell ya!

  1. We are dressed up to the nines in high-street fashion during mart sales.

Now a quirky quilted jacket and chelsea boots do just the same job!

  1. We all know about the beauty of brown envelopes!

We have to stock our own yards using our own pockets first and all that other Biz comes afterwards!

  1. We only buy the stock and never feed them!

Sure when you buy them, you have to look after them! It’s not for the fun of it; it’s all about that bottom line!
