Are your cattle Payback Fortified?
If you plan to sell your cattle on Northern Livestock Video auctions, consider verifying that your cattle are Payback Fortified. Once verified, you can mark them as Payback Fortified in the sale catalog. This means your cattle have been on a nutrition program prior to shipping that boosts their immune system and prepares them for the stresses of feedlots.

Here's the Payback

Lower incidence of respiratory disease = less vet/med expense
Improved quality grade = higher value
More marketable carcass
Lower death loss during finishing
Fewer sick calves during the receiving period = improved gain
