I really do not know what all this stuff means but I can only hope that it means that they will identify great and greater bulls quicker. I just cannot wait to be able to buy semen on an Angus bull that is minus birthweight and has a $B of +$200. Then I can be rich from the cattle business.

That should be in a couple of years depending on the assumptions (fudge factors) that go into $b.

how can an animal be plus on $B when each pound of gain cost more to produce than it is worth as beef?

Somebody sells because they think the price will go lower. Someone buys them because they think the price will get higher. Knowing the cost of gain means a heck of a lot more than pie in the sky indexes. Feed prices change every day, as do cattle prices, and all gravitate to break even which is the definition of a commodity. Of course registered cattle aren't a commodity until they are.



Bootheel, not a commodity

What is the Saying "garbage in Garbage out" Add in a few assumptions based on ???? and you have a meaningless index.

The last Angus event I attended the question was asked what cattle a big feeder/grid marketer prefered, He answered Charolais sired out of Angus cows. When asked what cattle are the most profitable, he said cheap southern calves with a little ear. We can have preferances IF we know the difference. Raise premium, buy discount and improve their health and condition.

It is pretty simple 1 +1 equals 2 not 1.5 if your calculator does not do this stay at home. At some times in the cattle finishing bussiness calcualtor will all have a y2k problem wait for the new shipment of calculators before purchcasing your self a loss. Just some thoughts on a risky bussiness Bob h

It appears to me that you have to win 51% of the time in order to stay in the game if you are playing with your own money, just some thoughts Bob h
