Just sat through two days of the Superior Video aution at Steamboat Springs.

There were a few lots with RFID tags. I wasn't able to tell that anyone cared that these lots were RFID. They didn't bring anymore money.

Although there were fewer implanted calves than in the past, it didn't appear that buyers were overly concerned. Our implanted calves brought more that comparable calves with no implants.

Superior also is promoting VASE - written verification of age. Weren't many lots that way. Superior claims it helped sell a couple of lots.


What buyers really cared about is weight, uniformity and geography -how far they have to be trucked.


One lot of pretty fine angus steers weighing 575# brought $152.50 or $877 a head.
