MULTIPLE LOTS: If Consigning multiple lots, check all "Kind/Sex" that apply and list Head Counts and Base Weights in respective order separated by a comma, slash or label. You can do this so you don't have to fill out multiple forms. Also applies for mixed loads.IF CONSIGNING 2 or more unlike lots (Eg. Steer Calves and Open Heifers and Bred Cows) please fill out a different form for each lot.
EG. Kind/Sex: Weaned Steer Calves ; Weaned Heifer CalvesHead Count: 180/90Base Weight: 675, 650(If shipping on 2 different dates, please specify in "notes to brokers" section)
HEAD COUNT: Please input a head count that allows a sort on the cattle. Generally speaking, a 10% sort is prefered to build a nice looking set of cattle from a standard 60 day calving period. Some 45-day calving period sets or purchased cattle take less than 10% while others may take a bigger sort. A good sort on the cattle ensures we can capture the most value for your cattle!
VACCINATIONS: Please Input Names of vaccinations the cattle have received and/or will receive prior to shipping. Also approximate dates they will get those shots.
Please call Boe Robbie @ 406.855.0051 with any questions! Thank You!
SLIDE: Price adjusts if over the contract base weight. EG. If 500 lbs @ $180.00cwt is contracted base and at delivery cattle average 510lbs (10 over base) then slide is applied ($0.14 x 10lbs = $1.40) then price adjusts to $178.60cwt.
SLIDE STOP: If Average weight at delivery exceeds 40 lbs over base weight, slide stops and remaining weight is sold at a rate of $0.80 per pound (average Feedlot Cost of Gain). EG. Base contract of 100 head @ 500lbs for $180.00cwt THEN 100 head weigh 550 at delivery, price adjusts ($0.14x 40lbs = $5.60 cwt) Price adjusts to $174.40 for 54,000lbs. Last 1,000 pounds sell for $800.00 total.
WEIGHING CONDITIONS: Conditions for fair weigh up of the cattle. -Suggested Guidelines: Weigh STRAIGHT or no shrink when cattle are hauled into the scale from a distance, 10+ miles or stood off feed overnight. Weigh with a 1% Shrink when cattle are hauled in a short distance, 4-10 miles. Bawling calves off the cow are weighed with 2% shrink. Weaned cattle over 600 lbs are weighed with a 3% Shrink.
NOTE: Conditions will be reviewed by MCC, if unsure of proper conditions select "unsure" and leave note at the bottom of the page.
