Keep/Cull
You are a large commercial cattle producer in South Central ND. You are in search of Angus Bulls to breed to your
mature cows. All steers and the bottom half of the heifers will be placed in a feedlot and then marketed directly to a
packing plant where they are sold on a quality based grid system. The other half of the heifers are kept as
replacements. This is an operation where labor and resources are abundant.
