Cow Growth Reference Tables

Written by Father Dougal on February 28 2018

Answering a request; here is a set of tables you can use to see how differently priced cows grow for different averages. While a long run of good or bad scores will skew the price in practice, the numbers should work out over the medium and long terms.

If you look at the profit numbers below, it is probably clear why I do not really like high priced cows. They have to score a lot more to make the same money as cheaper cows. I generally would go for a high priced cow when there are not cheap cows available. If I have reason to believe the cow is going to score highly that might do it, but probably not unless there is also a shortage, like say this season.

To give a real life example, was Jacob Weitering a good rookie selection last season? Let’s take a look at his numbers from last season.

At the last point where we would have wanted to trade him, the week of his bye, he had averaged 72.6 and had risen in value by $103,900 over ten weeks of growth.  A cow who cost 117,300 would have made $108,600 over just seven weeks growth with a 50 average. If you had to have one on the pitch, there is something to be said for the extra 158 points over those seven weeks. But not very useful money wise. It might well be that even the 50 scoring cow, who most likely would not be on the pitch, could generate more points overall if his profit went into buying a premium sooner.

Anyway, now you have some tools you can use to figure things like that our yourself!

  1. Awesome work FD. I’m also not a fan of expensive rookies and am usually very reluctant to pick them. This cost me big time last year, so I’m going to be more open to them this year as I fear we will have the same situation. Most people would’ve sold Weitering after rnd 6 for a 140k profit which would’ve been a solid return

  2. Great Write Up Father Dougal!

    Now with a few of us promoting your first 2 articles on Twitter you seem to be a big hit.

    With the site pushing up to 13k followers , Schwarzy around 500 , and with Hutta’s , Chillo’s and I pushing 600 between us we will be happy to welcome you onto Twitter by promoting to get followers for you to get word about your Write Ups out there.

    Now i am not saying it will not be extra work for you , however , we need a Team effort pushing the site out there with Motts , Hutta and Schwarzy doing the heavy lifting on Twitter and to a lesser Chillo who only signed up last week.

    It will be rewarding for you as well Father residing in the US as you will get all the latest #SuperCoach news if you follow all the AFL clubs and a few good Journo’s.

    Thommo is not off the hook either as when he posts his next article i will also be encouraging him to use his Twitter Account with the same promise.

            1. Hmmm… I remember tinkering with Twitter a couple times in the past and not knowing what the hell I was doing. I must have signed up twice by accident (or stupidity). Can you shut one down?

    1. I’m mostly done a post explaining the Supercoach pricing formula and process. That should cover it; its not exactly one formula.
