Description
 
Free electronic download only.  Selling cattle in advance of delivery requires the seller to estimate the future weight of the cattle. The sale price usually must be adjusted because delivery weights differ from estimated weights. This publication explains how to use an "up slide" and a "down slide" to determine fair market value.
