Price Premiums from a Certified Feeder Calf Preconditioning Program

Preconditioning calf programs add value for buyers. Models estimated with data collected for calves certified under the Oklahoma Quality Beef Network (OQBN) in 2001- 2003 generally found premiums paid for certified, preconditioned calves versus calves neither weaned nor vaccinated. Larger premiums were found when also marketing certified, preconditioned calves in sale lots of 10 head or more.
