The overall objective of this thesis is to determine the economics of feeding beef cattle high energy, restricted intake rations versus traditional backgrounding rations. Specific objectives are to: (1) Determine the economic performance of cattle fed RES versus TRA growing and finishing diets in SDSU feeding trials and analyze the effects of changing feedstuff prices on feed cost per pound of gain. (2) Determine whole-farm impacts from farmers following TRA versus RES growing programs (a) in eastern versus western South Dakota, (b) in large versus small farm-feedlots, and (c) for cattle fed only through backgrounding versus through finishing periods.
