UW Extension bulletin examines effects of increased beef cow average weights
Written by Basinradio on May 21, 2019
Average beef cow size in the U.S. has increased more than 303 pounds since 1975, and a new University of Wyoming Extension publication looks at the drivers behind the increase and industry consequences.
The effects addressed by authors of Beef Cow Size: Industry Trends, Economics, and Implications for Grazing Wyoming Rangelands, B-1343, include calf value and cost assumptions, unit cost of production and implications for grazing Wyoming Rangelands.
The free publication is at bit.ly/beef-cow-size and is available for viewing or download in PDF, HTML or ePub formats.
