They probably already would be already docked, if they had to run through the sale barn with everyone else's calves.

The current trend is increasing PCC seed stock sales.
The odd thing (for commercial producers) is that PCC seems to discourage cross breeding.
Any reason you could not put a continental bull on a four frame angus PCC cow and get a good CAB feedlot calf?

He ignores scale and marketing in this article, but does explains much of the why behind the Ohio Farmer write up.
I don't have the capital to play at his level. A partial solution is to tie into a successful marketing program, like PCC.


The "As seen on Tv" specialty items learned that ages ago. A sucker born every minute.

I didn't know about the ATV wreck. He was over here last week and seemed fine.
