Feedlots, cattle, ranching
The purpose of this study is to figure the fixed costs of constructing and equipping a 500, 1,000 or 10,000 cattle feedlot given certain assumptions and restrictions, and to analyze those costs in terms of economic efficiency. The fixed costs are divided into six areas of analysis: the equipment of the feedlot, the pole buildings, the concrete flooring for the pole buildings, the feedlot building materials, the feedlot storage equipment and the waste disposal.
