Description

Talk to most any beef producer and he can tell you the facts of his beef operation. Many cattlemen can go back three or four generation on a cow’s pedigree. He can tell you what bull was used on the farm for each of the last ten years. More than likely he can tell you the number of calves he weaned last year. He can tell you the average weight of those calves and if he topped the market, there is no doubt you will soon learn what price he received for the calves. Ask this cattleman what it cost to produce those calves and more than likely the response will be “My calves topped the sale last fall.”
