University of Wisconsin Extension conducted a survey of farms in Wisconsin to examine yardage costs associated with their Holstein steer finishing enterprise.
This Holstein steer yardage survey focused on overhead, labor/management, bedding, and direct expenses generally associated with yardage costs. It did not include feed, animal, and veterinarian/ pharmaceutical related costs. This project was conducted by UW Extension and UW-River Falls and was partially funded with USDA Risk Management Agency grant funds.
