  • Parcell, J.L.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Risks associated with independent hog finishing have prompted producers to seek alternative production and marketing methods. A means of reducing risk has developed through contract hog finishing. Research results ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Feed costs per hundred weight for farrow-to-finish operations in Kansas were generally lower for a milo-based diet than for corn-based or wheat-based diets. Use of corn and wheat in the diet was economical for short periods ...
  • Delano, F.D.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
    Dairy cow herd enterprise records from Kansas Farm Management Association farms over the past 4 years have shown an increase in returns to labor and management from $252 to $355 per cow. Returns for higher milkproducing cows ...
  • Parcell, J.L.; Langemeier, Michael R. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1996)

  • 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 ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Economies of size measure the impact on average cost of production of increasing the size of operation. Data from 91 farrow-to- finish operations enrolled in the Kansas Farm Management Associations in 1992 were used to ...
  • Langemeier, Michael R.; Schroeder, Ted C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1994)
