This study is the first of a series directed to the cattle feeding sector. Later studies will measure the relative advantage of cattle feeding in different regions and with facilities of different sizes. The present study is concerned with changes occurring in the sector of agriculture related to the cattle feeding industry. It serves as a review of changes in scale and location of cattle feeding, feeder cattle production, feed grain production, and interregional cattle movements.
