We sold some steers at CPH sale Tuesday, average weight was 676 lbs. The largest calves weighed 752, and brought 124.75, per lb. The lightest were 525, and brought, 133. I wish that would have had more to have sold.
I'm a little tainted on our state programs, so take this with a grain of salt. The last set of CPH calves I produced ended like this. The morning I got them up to haul off, one of them smelled what was going to happen and wouldn't come up. I caught him the next week, and cut his ear tag off to run him through the yard. He brought a nickel more per pound than the calves the previous week.
To the best of my knowledge you can't get in their heifer deal. It's not really a "program" if it's only for the chosen few.
I'll say this for the CPH sale in Guthrie, it draws big buyers that wont buy anything there on a regular sale. The last one I watched sell they had It before the regular sale and the CPH calves were significantly higher than the regular sale.
