cow/calf operation is a herd of cows having calves.<p>seedstock is a cow/calf operation that sells breeding stock.<p>Feedlot is a place that feeds cattle for slaughter.<p>Backgrounding/stocker is the stage between calf weaning and the finishing phase of the feedlot.<p>Pre-conditioned refers to calves that have been weaned and had their shots before they leave the original cow/calf operation.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada (seedstock producer)
