Economic Potential of Substituting Legumes for Synthetic Nitrogen in Warm Season Perennial Grasses used for Stocker Cattle Grazing AgEcon
Kering, Maru K.; Biermacher, Jon T.; Reuter, Ryan; Butler, Twain; Springer, Job D.; Rogers, James K.; Blanton, John, Jr.; Bouton, Joe H.; Guretzky, John A..
Stocker cattle grazing warm season perennial grasses is an important economic activity in the southern Great Plains. Substantial increases in the price of nitrogen fertilizer is negatively affecting forage producers’ profitability. Two alternative nitrogen management systems that use annual and perennial legumes have been developed for bermudagrass pastures. The goal of the study is to determine if the legumes systems are more profitable than the conventional practice of applying synthetic sources of nitrogen. Results of the two-year grazing study show that the legume systems could not compete economically with the common practice.

Factors Affecting Adoption of Recommended Management Practices in Stocker Cattle Production AgEcon
Johnson, Rachel J.; Doye, Damona G.; Lalman, David L.; Peel, Derrell S.; Raper, Kellie Curry; Chung, Chanjin.
Binary logit regression models were used to estimate factors affecting adoption of recommended management practices. Variables analyzed include aspects of farm structure, human capital, farm objectives, and production system employed by the producer. Results reveal that operation size and dependency upon income from the stocker operation, in particular, influence the adoption of recommended practices. Older producers and those pursuing a year-round production strategy were found to lag in adoption.

Optimal Grazing Termination Date for Dual-Purpose Winter Wheat Production AgEcon
Taylor, Karen W.; Epplin, Francis M.; Brorsen, B. Wade; Fieser, Brian G.; Horn, Gerald W..
Dual-purpose winter wheat (fall-winter forage plus grain) production is an important economic enterprise in the southern Great Plains. Grazing termination to enable grain production is a critical decision. The objective is to determine the optimal grazing termination date for dual-purpose wheat. The value of knowing the occurrence of first hollow stem (FHS), a wheat growth threshold for grazing termination, is also determined. Results indicate that for most price situations grazing should be terminated at or before FHS. Marginal wheat returns from extended grazing were negative and the value of FHS information ranges from $1.50 to $10 per acre.

PRICE DISCOVERY FOR STOCKER CATTLE FUTURES AND OPTIONS AgEcon
Diersen, Matthew A.; Klein, Nicole L..
Low trading volume in the CME stocker cattle contracts has made hedgers and speculators reluctant to use the contracts. Traders need decision tools to discover prices or to evaluate quoted prices that may not contain all the information in the market. The number of head of stocker weight cattle sold on the spot market has increased in recent years while the practice of cross-hedging stocker weight cattle against the feeder cattle contract remains risky. A model explains the spread between feeder cattle and stocker cattle futures prices as a function of feed prices, live cattle prices, and seasonal factors. The volatility of spot stocker cattle prices is comparable to spot feeder cattle prices, supporting the idea of using feeder cattle implied volatility...
