Alright ear cattle enthusiast, Jojofarms and myslef have decided to offer the semen for $50,000 a straw. We are only letting so many straws go so get them while you can. we decided on this to possibly help more people instead of just one buyer of the bull.

this is the bull. he is the only one we are letting semen go on.
14.4/14.8/3.9
9.7
64.1

If you have any questions or want to purchase some get with Jojofarm or myself. we would be glad to help any breeders we can.

thanks,
Jojo/S.S.F

Let me guess, so you would like to get 10m showcattle money for him. Smells like a bubble. I guess i have been watching too much the stock market lately.

well we have already sold 7 units to one player and have others waiting for people.

If you would like to buy him his price is much lower than 10m but good genetics dont come cheap.

I have been away from the game for few years and honestly never though I will see straws sell for 50k. Im looking to get into a breed and it looks like Brahmans are the hot commodity right now. I though my 5m will get me a top quality herd. It looks like I was wrong.

Jojo and Smith combined finances and bought out the tippy top Brah herd a couple months ago. (Used to be GNS[Gold N Silver] herd. He offered it up for sale for less than a week, not caring about getting the highest bid and chose those two to take over.)

If you are willing to settle for #2-#4 and put some work into breeding up, you will spend a LOT less than what Jojo/Smith are asking for the Brahs they rarely sell. Jojo/Smith will never sell the tippy top, anyways(not for anything someone is willing to pay), so if they continue to breed the top brahs, you will never catch up to them. (Only if they stop breeding/sell out)

There was public annoucments- forum post and chat annoucment.

It sold in three days- no different timing then most auctions on the sim.

Actually there was many bidders.

Actually it did go to the highest offer.

Don't paint me out to be some jerk just becasue you missed out!

My apologies if that is how it sounded. It was meant as the opposite, actually. You, yourself, had stated that it wasn't the highest bid you were looking for but, rather someone who would actively continue the breeding program and push the breed further.

The fact that you said you weren't looking for just the highest amount of money you could get speaks volumes to your character.


It was said as a good thing. Too much of this sim has focused on money, money, money lately. It needs to get back to the betterment of breeds as a whole. With trying to get more breeders into the fold, getting back into the showing side and the friendly competition that the site was meant to be. Not just who has the largest bank account. And you were looking at the former, not the latter. That was a good thing.

(I didn't "miss out" on them. I never wanted them dirty eared, flappy skinned.... things. :P )

I'd like to comment on the "Jojo/Smith will never sell the tippy top,anyways(not for anything someone is willing to pay), so if they continue to breed the top brahs, you will never catch up to them."

That is completely incorrect. I have never been approached by you to buy anything. Nothing is ever off limits and everything has it's price. I have always known what my cattle are worth, as I have worked very hard and very long on this game to acquire some of the best genetics. I will not let them go for less than what they are worth. I ask fair and reasonable prices. If that is more than you are willing to pay, does not mean it is not reasonable or the correct price.

I do agree that you can easily be competitive in Brahs or any breed if you are okay being second tier.
