  3. Cost Analysis in Feedlot Performance of BuffaloData Collected From Approx. 2200 bulls in-weight 600 – 800 lbs@ Cold Creek Buffalo Co.

  4. Dry Matter (DM)Conversion & Cost of Gain (COG)

  5. Top Half of the Bulls DM Feed Consumption 20.2 lbs/day DM Conversion 8.6 lbs. feed/ lb of gain DM Feed Cost $ 160.00/ton Yardage Cost $ 0.45/day Average Daily Gain (ADG) 2.35 lbs/day Cost of Gain (COG) $ 0.88/lb Range of Dry Matter Conversion = 7.7 – 9.2

  6. Bottom Half of the Bulls DM Feed Consumption 19.6 lbs/day DM Conversion 10.2 lbs. feed/ lb of gain DM Feed Cost $ 160.00/ton Yardage Cost $ 0.45/day Average Daily Gain (ADG) 1.92 lbs/day Cost of Gain (COG) $ 1.05/lb Range of Dry Matter Conversion = 9.3 – 12.4

  7. Difference in $$ 400 # gain x $17.00/cwt = $68.00 / hd difference Top to Bottom Comparison Top Bottom Difference $.79 COG $1.28 COG $196/hd
