cow-calf operations, maure production, livestock feestuff production
In this research report, the following question is examined. Can individual integrated crop and cow-calf operations be simultaneously "balanced" from the standpoints of (1) amounts of manure produced "matching" (plus or minus 10%) the soil fertility needs of producers' cropland and rangeland and (2) amounts of feedgrains and roughages produced matching (plus or minus 10%) the nutrient needs of producers' livestock? Answers to the question were sought through examination of livestock manure production and utilization and livestock feedstuff production and consumption on eight South Dakota integrated crop-livestock case farms.
