Measuring Feed Efficiency

Cattlemen's College Measuring Feed Efficiency

Volatile input prices and unpredictable markets have brought the issue of feed efficiency in the beef industry under more intense pressure than ever before. While accurately predicting feed efficiency remains difficult, cattlemen like Colorado rancher Lee Leachman and researchers like Pfizer's Ron Green believe they are inching much closer to answers about how producers can maximize the results of the feed they're putting into their animals. The two men will provide a presentation, "Measuring Feed Efficiency," for Cattlemen's College at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association at the 2009 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Tradeshow.
