Took delivery of a few loads contract purchased steers coming off grass. 1 loads was a hundred plus lb under base weight, others were 50+ lb under base weight. I think the quality is mostly good, just didnt gain as well as sellers though on washy spring grass. Here are some pics of the load that come in yday, and a few of them all in the barn. They averaged 780lb and cost 1.33 plus approx .015 freight.
Other yearlings we had been bringing in we were just starting them right on the finish ration. These are thin enough we will warm them up with something that has more fiber and lower energy for a couple weeks before we give them the finisher.
