I t will depend omn the barn. In areas where it's about all bulls the steers will sell for the same as bulls, and a set of real top bulls many times bring more than the steers. In areas where there are mostly steers and plenty of numbers the steers will outsell the bulls of comparable quality several $ Cwt.watso059":3uuho6dj said:I'm just curious how much better angus or brangus steers would do at the salebarn than the same calves that are not steers? Also, what is the cleanest and safest way to castrate?
That's the way it should be. But in the deep south they pay the same for steers as bulls because they are so few steers. The buyers can buy 5 steers and 95 bulls. Who wants to pay a premium for the steers when they don't have to. Then you have the city boys like houston cutter that thinks he is cutting a fat hog in the ass bragging about selling his bulls for the same price as steers. About all that sells in his area are bulls and the multiplyers are all thinking the same.CattleAnnie":388qsl7n said:Up here you can usually expect to be docked about 10 cents a pound for bull calves as opposed to same weight/quality/breed that are steers.
