Abstract

The demand for beef is increasing rapidly because of the population growth and because of higher beef consumption per capita. Corn refuse can provide satisfactory beef cow maintenance when properly supplemented. The technology and equipment are now available to either store high-moisture shelled corn in gas-tight silos or to dry it artificially. The lack of power for such operations is not now so restrictive. Changes in price-cost relationships are forcing farmers into more competitive positions requiring them to obtain higher returns from each land unit.
