Ok, so I am thinking of getting into cattle. I don't know a whole lot about cattle. I was looking at the market report in Galt on beef cattle. My problem is, how do you read it? It says something like this.

Feeder Steers

400-500 lbs. 270.00-302.00

What I want to know is what does the numbers on the right mean? Is saying that you get $270 per a steer? Or a lb? Or what? If it's in $ it don't seem right that it's only $270-302 a steer. It just don't seem right..? Any help would be appreciated a lot? Thanks!
