Base weight of 800#. Steer purchase price of $150.00/cwt, with a slide of $.08
Average pay weight of 830# on day of delivery
830# - 800# = 30# over base weight
30# X $.08 = $2.40/cwt = $147.60/cwt adjusted price

Weight Stop: 35#
Average pay weight is 840#; weight stop is at 835# so the last 5 lbs is free
35# X $.08 = $2.80/cwt
$150.00/cwt - $2.80 = $147.20/cwt adjusted price
Two Way Slide
Slide off decreases price per CWT by stated slide amount starting at 1 lb over base weight, stopping at stated stop (35 lbs max). Slide increases price per CWT by stated slide amount starting at 1 lb under base weight stopping at stated stop (35 lbs max).

Weight Stop at 35# over base weight
840# average pay weight - (same as above)
Under Base Weight
