He weighed 385 and definately leaned towards his jersey sires looks, that is why he was sent to the auction. I got 1.30 for him and brought home $500.50. I was very happy with that!
I was thinking I should have hauled all of the calves to the auction instead of preconditioning. I guess I will find out in a month if I made a good choice of preconditioning rather the selling at the auction.

most of the preconditioning programs want them on feed for 30-45 days which can greatly increase your feed costs.
The calculations are for 28 days not just 7
