Cattle Feedlot Management | J.R. Simplot Company

Beef & Dairy Custom Feeding

Decades ago, the J.R. Simplot Company launched its cattle feeding business to put the potato by-products generated by our food processing plants to good use. We have fed millions of cattle over the years by utilizing our own food by-products as part of a grain-based professionally balanced ration.

"Cost Analysis of Cattle Feedlot Designs" by J.M. Mrozinski, R.H. Pritchard et al.

A cost analysis of fixed and non-fixed costs of gain was conducted on 3 cattle feedlot designs. The three facility designs compared were conventional open pens (OPN), open pens with shelter over the feeding area (OS), and a monoslope confinement barn (MON). The OPN design was the least expensive facility to build and operate. However, because of poorer cattle performance (P < 0.05), it was not the most cost effective. The MON design had significantly higher operating costs when compared to the OPN or OS designs, especially for the tractor/spreader (P < 0.05), skid loader (P < 0.10), labor (P < 0.05), and straw (P < 0.05). The operating and fixed costs, combined, made the MON design the most expensive cost of gain design (P < 0.05). The OS design was the most expensive facility to build but with current feed prices and the cattle performance, it was the most cost effective cattle feeding design.

Bovine respiratory disease is the most common disease among feedlot cattle in the United States. It accounts for approximately 75% of feedlot morbidity and 50% to 70% of all feedlot deaths (Edwards, 1996; Galyean, Perino, and Duff, 1999; Loneragan et al., 2001).

The majority of deaths due to BRD occur shortly after arrival to the feedlot or within the first 45 days (Edwards, 1996; Loneragan et al., 2001). In fact, Buhman et al. (2000) reported that about 91% of calves diagnosed with BRD were diagnosed within the first 27 days after arrival.

Raising Cattle for Beef Production & Beef Safety – ExploreBeef.org

Raising CattleThe Stages of Beef ProductionBeef production represents the largest single segment of American agriculture. In fact, USDA says more farms are classified as beef cattle operations (35%) than any other type.Raising cattle involves numerous farms and operations, each serving a unique role in the process. At each stage, America&rsquo;s farmers and ranchers strive to provide safe, high-quality beef for consumers while following best practices for raising cattle humanely.1. Cow-Calf Operation &ndash; Beef production begins with ranchers who maintain a breeding herd of cows that nurture calves every year. When a calf is born, it weighs 60 to 100 pounds. Over the next few months, each calf will live off its mother&rsquo;s milk and graze grass in pasture.2. Weaning &ndash; Beef calves are weaned at six to 10 months of age when they weigh between 450 and 700 pounds. These calves are now grass-fed in pasture.3. Stockers and Backgrounders &ndash; After weaning, cattle continue to gro
