I've added a display of the average price of 600-700 lb feeder steers in the five regions of Texas to the market reports for that state...

Steer in a Jeff Shop

You know how every year a calf will get loose at a show and run through a crowd of people but miraculously never actually run into somebody?  

It’s mainly because people hear the yelling and get out the way but largely because most show steers, even the stupid ones, don’t actually want to run through people, they just want to get free.  There was even an episode of Myth Busters where they put a bull in a china shop and he didn’t hit anything.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if one of those calves just blew up somebody with well below average hearing that was looking the other direction?

It hurts.

The calf that got me was evidently going fast enough that he sprained my ankles from the collision before I ended up face first in the dirt.

Here’s a six-year-old artists rendition of it…

360 Degree Video

What was that thing in the middle of the ring for several classes in Seguin this past weekend?


It was filming this...




If you’re on your phone right now, pull up that video in the Youtube App (NOT just a normal browser) and move your phone around you.  The video will show whatever was in the direction you are pointing the camera.

If you had a VR head set, it would show the video as if you are standing in the middle of the ring.

That's not how cutout works...

...unless you raise show steers that have as much ribeye as round steak.



That was shared 51 times when I posted this Thursday morning.  I predict that will be shared 200 times by the time it's done on Facebook because it's the kind of thing that makes ag people feel good about themselves.

The problem is it isn't true.

That's not how cutout works.  If it were then your feeder calves would be selling for something in the $4/lb range if not higher.

Don't share that stuff.

Your auction is doomed anyway if you have to lie to your buyers about what they are getting.

Want to know the actual value of a cutout carcass?  There's a well established tool for that...
