Abstract: Cattle producers are faced with difficult decisions on how they market their calves. This study examines the different characteristics that play a role in determining the price of a group of animals. Identifying characteristics that determine price differentials relative to the price premium given to producers participating in CPH sales is important information when producers are making a marketing decision. The model developed in this study provides producers with evidence of what characteristics generate the highest price, as well as relative differences between sales locations and types of sales. The more information available to producers, the better equipped they are to make decisions.
