I'm trying to figure out the caculations that affect the slaughter prices of these two bulls.

www.showcattle.com/cattle.aspx?id=9941378

he's black, ok that's 2%, and he's about 80 lbs lighter, but I get $1420 for him.

This one I only get $1021 for, why so much difference?

Buul #2 is red, which knocks him down.

He's also older, which knocks him down.

He's also over 1500 pounds which knocks him down.

Bulls and steers over 60 days automatically get dropped to 80% of the market price.

That's probably why.

But both bulls are over 60 days and 1500 lbs, aside from one being black there's little difference except the 80lb lighter one got me $400 more.

Being red doesnt knock them down the just don't get a 2% premium, not that the black bull got one either because he has more than 25% Brahman in him. From what I can get from this, the heavier they get the more they get cut back in price, not just go from 80% market price to 50% when the hit 2000lbs, but go down bit by bit everyday.


All other cattle over 60 days old are discounted to 80% of the market price.

There will be a 2% premium for black hided cattle with less than 25% Brahman influence.

Cattle over 1,500 lbs will be discounted increasing up to 50% for cattle 2,000lbs and over.
