Research Available to Producers
An eight-year study shows that high-percentage Angus calves are worth $30 per head more at auction than their non-Angus counterparts.
The Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) “Here’s the Premium” survey of 10 auction markets across the United States notes an increasing trend in the premiums paid for calves of known Angus genetics. Spring 2006 found a record $32.64 incentive.
As part of an ongoing effort to share research with producers, CAB has created a new “Black Ink Basics” Technical Bulletin featuring this information.
“Angus Advantage Still Growing” was also recently added to the collection of 13 total. To view, print or share these documents, visit www.cabpartners.com/news/basics/index.php .
