Welcome to the North Dakota State University Extension Service's cattle feeding Internet site (CalfWEB). This site is designed to assist cattle feeders in evaluating the potential and actual profitability in feeding cattle.
To calculate the potential profitability of feeding cattle, the Breakeven Calculator is used before calves are placed on feed. The Closeout Analyzer is then used to calculate profitability after the cattle are sold.
You have the option to become a member at no cost. As a member, you can then save your information at this site for later review. Also, by being a member, you can benchmark your results for comparison with other cattle feeders.
This Internet site also contains links to other sites for regional and national market prices, futures market prices, informational sites, and a listing of NDSU Extension Specialists involved in beef production.
For more information or concerns, please contact Karl Hoppe NDSU Extension Area Specialist/ Livestock at 701-652-2951 or firstname.lastname@example.org
