    Get on web and check prices, over the years I’ve purchased two from Argentina for a couple hundy each. They look bloody good spread out on a timber floor.

    just looked at tannery prices about $550 for a smaller skin to be tanned .used to get a credit with the homekill guy of $120 off the cost of killing a beast for the green skin.

    No offence intended, I would rather a stag skin.

    Cow skins are actually hard wearing though you can walk on them etc no worries, deer skin starts to lose hairs/the hair starts breaking etc if you walk on them

    I am aware of that. I do not walk on my ones. I just prefer stag as it's a hunt I can relive every time I see them.
    I also think there is far too much emphasis on cows in NZ these days. Deer look so much more nicer to see than cows.
    Just my views of course, but what would I know.

    still clearly remember the first time I saw a cow hide on a floor...I stood there scratching my head trying to work out what the hell it came off.
