I remember reading somewhere that if u bid on your own auction cattle, that it will affect a rating or something like that. Where do you go to find that information out about a particular ranch/person?

I am not sure where to find that rating. I have heard about it as well.

When I used to play I remember the auction ratings! That was back in like 2006 or 2007 though. It was helpful to know if someone was going to try to rise the price on you. I didn't even remember until I read this post though. There was a few players with pretty bad auction ratings though.

Just my 2cents but the seller should be able to set some type of reserve before listing it. I don’t like bidding or getting bid up on either, but if I’m not getting what I think an animal is worth, then I personally dont feel bad about buying it back.

You can set a reserve as seller, however limit is currently 25k.

yes, your starting bid is essentially your reserve.

If you have a reserve you want that is higher than 25k, the thing you should be doing is bid the reserve you want right away and then big AGAIN the same reserve so that the price is then set at that reserve.

I have no problem with someone doing that.
I do have a problem with someone bidding on their own cattle with an unknown reserve(they set a proxy bid).
And people who bid with their other ranches thinking they are being sneaky.
Hint: You aren't being sneaky.
