ethanol, beef production, economics, carbon, nutrient budgets
This publication uses a case-study approach to investigate the impacts of linking corn production, ethanol, and backgrounding calves on economics and soil sustainability. The purpose of the paper is to initiate a dialog and provide an example of how the three industries can be integrated to enhance profitability. Conclusions drawn from this case study should not be extrapolated beyond the scope of this publication.
