Sent a dozen calves to the feeder sale a few weeks ago, 9 steers and 3 heifers born late august- mid september.
553 lbs average @ $3.08/lb average.
Very pleased.
Fed them mostly oat silage the last few months, they sure were looking sharp.

When we got into the beef business 6 years ago, the first group of calves we sent to the sale barn went for $1.22/lb average, certainly a nice change. :D

Nothing wrong with that.

The first calves I ever sold were some 5wt steers that brought 87 cents, and they were 5$ higher than any other 5wts at the sale.
