Getting More $$Dollars for Your Feeder Calves

Getting More $$Dollars for Your Feeder Calves

Beef cattle have been a part of our area for decades and decades and we have learned how to produce cattle in high demand by the buyers. However we, for the most part, have not been getting all we could when we take these higher quality calves through sale barn. Given the current cattle marketing climate it may seem strange to talk about adding value to feeder calves. After all they are commanding high prices right now. There is more profit to be had for the beef producers who are willing to make provision for it.
