Newbie here and there is something I don't understand. Why is the price higher for calves that weigh less at the market. If a finished for slaughter steer weighs 1000 lbs, would a steer weighing 550 lbs not be cheaper to feed out than one that weighed 300? Seems a heavier calf would take less input and would thus bring a higher price to the seller at least up to a point. I know there is probably a reason but t looks like (at least to an amateur) that its just a way to profit more on the producer.
