Analysis of Factors Affecting Cow Auction Price Differentials

James Mintert (), Joanne Blair, Ted Schroeder and Frank Brazle

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1990, vol. 22, issue 2, 23-30

Abstract: Data from Kansas cattle auctions were analyzed to estimate the impact a wide variety of physical characteristics had upon cow prices. Weight, lot size, health, pregnancy, grade, dressing percent, breed, time of sale, and market location were important factors affecting the differences in cow prices across lots on a given day. Results suggest that producers interested in maximizing the price they receive for their cows should market healthy cows in desirable lot sizes at higher dressing percentages.
