Feedlot Calculator

Profit margins for feedlotting can be low and it is important that producers accurately estimate the profitability of such ventures prior to committing resources to this labour intensive activity.

The web based gross margin feedlot calculator developed by Dave Stanley and Geoff Duddy of NSW DPI enables the user to enter different real time production, economic and feeding scenarios to estimate likely profit for a lamb feedlotting enterprise. For those not experienced with lamb feedlotting it is suggested that the linked nutrition information (eg. agnote on feedlotting lambs) be read.
