Determining the Variation in Certified Preconditioning Premiums for Heifers and Steer
AbstractThis study applies separate hedonic models to Oklahoma Quality Beef Network data to determine differences in the value of preconditioning premiums for steers versus heifers. Results indicate that preconditioning values are generally lower for heifers but exceed steer premiums at higher weights. Separate treatment of steers and heifers is validated.
