Abstract

Steers differ greatly in their growth patterns, feed use, and carcass grading characteristics. Feedlot operations can increase their net returns by altering feed rations and slaughter dates according to individual steer differences. Experimental data giving biological relationships for two types of steers fed nine alternative rations were combined with a computer simulation to optimize slaughter dates and to estimate the effects of breed type, feed ration, pricing system, and price-cost ratios on profitability and length of feeding period.
