From the Back Cover

Beef Production and Management Decisions, fourth edition, is the most comprehensive beef cattle management text available on the market today. Taking a management-systems approach, the new edition identifies the primary biological principles that contribute to raising productive beef cattle. It then integrates these principles with the economic considerations involved in producing profitable, preferred consumer products, thus enhancing understanding and communication among all segments of the beef industry.

Some features of this edition include:
  • Takes an updated look at the cattle cycle and the factors that influence it
  • Adopts a more ecologically-based viewpoint toward U.S. geography
  • Focuses on how Integrated Resource Management principles apply to the beef industry
  • Provides in-depth coverage of how beef producers can lower production costs and increase profitability
