Abstract

Fattening cattle in feedlots is the cheapest way to produce beef, at prevailing feed prices. If cattle were slaughtered at lighter than usual weight after only a short time on grain feeding, production costs per pound would increase and beef output would decrease. Six alternative beef production systems that varied the time that animals were placed in the feedlot and their slaughter weights were analyzed at various levels of grain and forage prices.
