FATTENING CATTLE for market is a major enterprise on
many Minnesota farms. The number of cattle on feed in Minnesota
has risen steadily from 294,000 in 1950 to 400,000 in 1959.
This gain is due to an increase in both the number of farmers
feeding cattle and the number of cattle fed per farm. Farmers
who are beginning a cattle-feeding enterprise or expanding an·
existing one need accurate information in order to plan the
catttle-feeding operation to fit their individual farm situations.
This bulletin is intended to provide information on the labor
requirements for cattle feeding as affected by the tasks performed
and the number of cattle fed.
