Description:
Research has been conducted in several states on the profitability of stocker operation
management strategies. Examples include Oklahoma (Johnson, 2006), California (Nader
et al., 2010), and southeastern states (McKissick and Ikerd, 1996). These studies often
focus on grazing stockers on wheat stubble or other crop-aftermath (DeVuyst et al., 2010;
Langemeier and Ohlenbusch, 1996), which is not relevant to northwestern Wyoming. This
bulletin describes costs and revenues for a 'typical' stocker steer operation in northwestern
Wyoming, acknowledging that no operation is typical. It is targeted to producers, lenders,
and educators who require a baseline budget from which they can explore potential effects
on costs and revenues of a proposed change in a stocker operation. It also provides information
for producers who are considering a switch to a stocker operation (from a cow/calf/
yearling operation) to mitigate brucellosis risk or to reduce winter feeding costs.
