the kids sale the calf in the premium sale. the buyers put forth their money, get the picture and thanks from your 4-her and then the slaughterhouses pay market price and add that onto your total sale's. so say your kids calf weighs 1250. he sales in the premium sale for 1000 dollars. if the buyer doesn't want the meat, they only pay the premium, the calf goes to a house and they pay market.

now, if your buyer does want the meat, they pay market price. all calves go to the same slaughter house immediately after sale. they buyers who do want the meat get it butchered at the same facility. that's how ours does it anyway.
The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

At a terminal show all animals are killed after the show, they do not load back out, they go to the packer from the show.
Now there are different ways to handle this, at our county show once you have sold your animal you can not show it anywhere else, but you can take it back home if you purchase it from the packer, but that is not a terminal show.

After an old steer jock's last show they take him out back and hang him. ;) ;)


is it all used for hamburger?

Nope - glue - since they never enter the human food chain the withdrawals of decades of various and sundry concoctions are irrelevant  ;)

next time you buy glue think of your old favorite steer jock - mumble a few words of thanks btwn chewing

How many steer jocks does it take to show one calf? I saw a winners photo the other day. There was aproximately 30 people in the photo. One kid, 9 fitters,grandpa( I assume he is in charge of the trust fund), one judge(sqaushed up against someone in bermuda shorts),3 representatives of feed companies,3 people who traded the steer around before it was actually sold to the trust fund,2 drunk guys that noone has a clue who they are(apparently they just walked up and got into the picture). There was one kid in the photo and he looked like he was pissed cause his video game was interuppted for the photo. ;D

Thanks to all.  That is pretty much what I was thinking a terminal show is.  I will have to talk to our board and get them to be specific to avoid a lot of conflict down the road!
