Hereford heifers

Take a look at these and see what you think. Shouldn't they be asking more for them each though, or is this the average price for heifers? I'm wondering as to wether it is a stock reduction sale, because he is selling bulls as well

the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

I don't know who this is, but I would say they must be pretty anxious to sell at that price. There are quite a lot of Herefords for sale at the moment. They are quite leggy so presumably are yearlings? Does "pedigree" mean registered - not necessarily perhaps. Doesn't say anything about disease status other than TB. Just my thoughts - may be a bargain or risky - need to find out more..
