Abstract

Cattle that stay healthy in the feedlot produce greater revenue than those that become sick. Data from the Texas Ranch to Rail Program on over 16,000 calves showed healthy cattle returned $67.32 per head while calves treated one or more times returned -$20.28 per head. Let’s start at the beginning and examine factors that affect health in the feedlot.
