“Prime kicker” would just be what they were paying as a premium over there base price. Which is generally only available in an “in the meat” price, which isn’t what your were offered so I led you wrong there kinda. Looking at the June board that price seems a little soft but could end up being strong come June? How far away is the plant? If there trucking ends up being $3-$4 that’s probably not a bad deal if they’re eating it. Most heifers are more than fully cooked weighing 1450-1500 unless they have some serious frame. I wouldn’t advise adjusting the ration wildly at the size could cost you more money that you’d save.
