Feedlot Profit Projector

Our experienced nutrition consultants can help you succeed by assisting you with profit projections and recordkeeping. Shown below is an online system for calculating a breakeven point for a 550- to 800-pound backgrounding feeder calf. This calculator is intended only to test the feasibility of your inputs. We recommend that you have our consultants take feed samples and design specific rations for your operation.
