Weekly grid market share by volume for slaughter steers is compared with slaughter heifers. Summary statistics indicate average grid market share for steers (42%) is higher relative to heifers (33%). The literature indicates that pregnancy and increased dark cutter incidence associated with heifers relative to steers create additional financial risk when heifers are sold on a grid. Empirical evidence suggests that carcass quality risk is a plausible contributing factor to gender disparity with respect to grid market share.
