    The bad feet were on a bull that was on test at Midland this past year. It apparently turned in to quite a fiasco as he was a very high $B bull and the breeder wanted them to trim his feet and sell him. The folks at Midland told him when they trimmed feet it was terminal!

    Cattle Market

    I'm still in awe that we can describe fats in the $150's and feeders in the $210's as "soft". Although the higher priced feeders were also locked in on higher fat prices. Still, I agree with you on both accounts BMR, particularly on future bred prices. If those breds have to pay for...

    Question for the nutrionists

    To be honest, it really isn't any different that balancing based on a nutrient profile. You just have to know the amount of each element in your ingredients. Protein is basically already done this way as protein percentages are extrapolated from the average nitrogen concentration in the...
