Beef feedlot placement considerations at current feed prices
Placement of beef feeders into finishing lots have financial risks that need to be considered at today’s cash values of corn and corn silage.
During this time of high feed and forage prices most cattle operations are taking extra time to consider all feed and forage options as well as the financial costs and the resulting production impacts.
A special webinar recording is available through (MSU) and provides a comparison of the projected economic returns when either placing feeder cattle into a feedlot or harvesting this year’s corn as cash grain or forage.
Professors Jim Hilker and Roy Black of MSU discuss a case farm’s spreadsheet example to evaluate how the financial position would change given today’s cattle and feed prices.
