One of the largest costs for cowEcalf producers is feed costs. Costs associated with feeding the producing beef cow represent over sixty percent of the total costs in a cowEcalf production system and are the largest determinant of profitability for beef producers (Miller, et al., 2001). With recent increases in hay and grain prices, this percentage of total costs could be even higher.
