Description

This manual can help producers compare five feedlot facility types including confinement and open lot.

Estimated costs, performance assumptions based on available research, manure value, and discussion on environmental issues are provided and analyzed for each facility type.

The companion Feedlot Facility Economic Assessment calculator provides producers with a quick comparison between types of facilities and related costs. Spreadsheets can be customized to your operation to conduct an economic facility assessment, input costs, and performance related measures to optimize operations.
