COST EFFECTIVENESS OF ON-FARM SEMI-CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS FOR COW-CALF PRODUCTION

During extreme drought, grazing is unavailable and hay is expensive. Feed and labor costs in confinement cow-calf systems using concentrate diets are not well established. Cows were wintered in semi-confinement and costs determined. Results indicate that high concentrate confinement systems diets may provide alternatives to forage based cow-calf systems.
