We have now marketed over 15000 head, through USPB, of our home raised calves!
With a grid premium averaging over $75 per head now, $50 for the whole 20 years, you can see how it pays to market your genetics and hard work with a group of like-minded operations. There is still room for YOUR calves too! Let us help you figure it out.
I used to keep a running blog of things in the feedlot, and I copied some of that info over to this page if you care to read through it. The main changes in the last few years have been more primes, higher % choice and less 'out' cattle as we learn to sort better! I do think that is a huge reason for our success. Kevin is so good at sorting fat cattle, and we do not sweep the pen, rather sort the cattle when they are ready. What this means; even though cattle may be within a few pounds of each other when they go in the pen they do not grow the same or stay that close as a group. By sorting them, over the course of 6 weeks, we optimize their finish times and profitability.
