Abstract

This budget presents information useful to beef farmers. Table 1 presents estimates for the 2020 year for backgrounded steer calves in Missouri. Assumptions were based on price forecasts as of October 2019. Detailed prices and practices are summarized in Tables 2, 3, 4 and 5. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common for beef farms in Missouri. Farmers are encouraged to customize this budget to fit their operation.
