Stocker Cattle Contracts

There are several issues to consider when a cattle producer hires a stocker feeder after the progeny are weaned.  Besides the payment terms and term, example issues include the following:

1.  Feed and nutrition (including pasture quality and supplemental vitamins and nutrients);

2.  Animal health (including vaccinations, veterinary care, deworming for internal parasites); and,

3.  Control of pests (e.g., insecticides, fly control).

It’s rare but some stocker cattle contracts there can be promises made for average daily gain (“ADG”).
