Why 4% shrink?
Accepted shrink out of a pen with empty bunk in AM. They will walk 1/2 mile from pen to scale. I wouldn’t want to buy $60 worth of fill that will be shoveled out of the trailer and I don’t expect someone buying from me to either.
10-4. I started preconditioning calves and I’m only getting hit w 2% here. Just curious.
No hauling to scale? 2% would be after a 50 mile or closer haul here. No shrink after 150 miles.


Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)

I have a set of scales at a gravel pit that’s 5 miles from me. They let the trucks weigh there. I’d throw up if they hit me with a 4% haha
