THE EFFECTS OF FEED PRICES, INTEREST RATES AND FED CATTLE PRICES ON BREAKEVEN FEEDER CATTLE PRICES: A SIMULATION APPROACH

Using simulation, performance functions were estimated to assess the effects of rapidly changing production costs for fed cattle on feeder and fat cattle breakeven prices. From these functions response measures were calculated. They suggest inelastic relationships between production variables and breakeven prices for feeder and fat cattle.
