Are you getting any carcass data back from your steers? We hit 60% Prime this year. Prime gets us $0.35/lb more than Choice. Genomic/DNA tested all of the commercial heifers and hope to hit 80% Prime in two years.

It took a group of us sticking to a plan for several years to get there. Glad I didn't have to make the culling decisions because a lot of cows didn't make it. The funky looking bull I used on my hobby cattle is responsible fora lot of the progress. He will be the only bull that made it here for 5 years. Super efficient bull, too.
