  • Fanning, J.; Marsh, T.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    The effects of beef cow herd inventory management strategies on net income were evaluated in a historical simulation of a representative Kansas beef-cow herd. Constant inventory, counter-cyclical, and dollar-cost ...
  • Johnson, Sandra K.; Fogleman, S.L.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Breeding system costs were estimated for natural service and various estrous synchronization plus artificial insemination (AI) systems. Cost per pregnancy was lower for natural service than AI; however, for the large herd ...
  • Eidson, S.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1998)
    Beef cow producers must manage costs of production and improve production efficiency to compete with hog and poultry and other beef cattle producers. A sample of 46 beef cow enterprises from the Kansas Farm Management ...
  • Dhuyvetter, Kevin C.; Jones, R.; Turner, T.; Marsh, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    The two primary objectives of this study were to re-examine the economic values of production expected progeny differences (EPD) and how they relate to the values assigned to actual weights, and to assess the impact ...
  • Porter, R.W.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2005)
    The results of this study indicate that farmer-feeders who finish as few as 700 head per year can compete with the large commercial feedlots from a cost perspective. The lack of a sophisticated feed mill does not prevent ...
  • Stryker, L.; Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    Cow-calf producers must learn to control those aspects of production that are under their management. Quantity of beef produced and the cost of maintaining the breeding herd from conception to weaning are two examples ...
  • Stryker, L.; Jones, R.; Langmeier, M. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2002)
    For the beef industry to be economically competitive with other meat industries, it is essential that individual producers strive for the most efficient, highest quality, least cost production possible. A sample of 26 ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to examine the effects that individual performance and ingredient price factors have on cost of gain; 2) to quantify the annual and/or seasonal trend in cost of gain in Kansas ...
  • Babcock, A.; Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2006)
    This study had three primary objectives: 1) to determine if there is an annual and/or seasonal trend in percentage of death loss in Kansas feedlots; 2) to examine the difference in death loss between steers and heifers; ...
  • Schroeder, Ted C.; Mintert, J.; Jones, R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Previous research indicates that the number of bids received on pens of fed cattle has a positive influence on price. This study was undertaken to determine what factors influence the number of bids received on pens ...
  • Jones, R.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    This study examines historical net returns to average Kansas swine producers over the past 16 years. Swine production has been a profitable enterprise. As expected, average returns per head have been higher for ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Jones, R.; Kuhl, G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    This study examined improvements in the finishing performance of steers and heifers from 1990 to 1998 by measuring the rate of technological change. The rates of technological change were 0.58% per year for finishing ...
  • Mintert, J.; Jones, R.; Brazle, F.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    An analysis of more than 1400 pens of cattle marketed during 1990 examined the influence of several cattle traits and marketing factors on fed cattle prices. Cattle quality grade had an important impact on packer ...
  • Mintert, J.; Jones, R.; Brazle, F.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Factors affecting western Kansas fed cattle prices during May through November 1990 were investigated. In particular, the impact of changes in captive cattle supplies on cash prices was examined. The term captive ...
