Abstract

Profit can be increased by feeding some pens of cattle additional days on feed and selling on a pricing grid that rewards quality. Discounts for Yield Grade 4 and heavy weight carcasses for as many as 10% to 15% of a pen may not exceed the premiums for higher grading carcasses and the benefit of selling additional weight on all cattle sold. While the grid price can be increased by feeding some pens of cattle fewer days and marketing on a yield grade rewarding grid, net returns are often decreased because of selling fewer total pounds.
