Delayed processing of calves following their shipment from other states to California for growing resulted in a higher cost per pound weight gain and poorer performance than processing calves at their point of origin or immediately upon their arrival. In two of the three studies, conducted at the University of California Imperial Valley Field Station, calves processed before shipment showed the best response at the lowest cost.
