What is a Backgrounder?

The backgrounder is a person who provides management services that many cow/calf producers omit, such as castrating, dehorning, and vaccinating.  Backgrounders also consolidate calves from many different small producers, get them ready for feedlot and merchandize them to feeders who demand a more uniform group of calves to put on feed.
