With the availability of ethanol byproducts and the advent of large affordable buildings, both of which can lower feed prices and minimize environmental issues, some Midwestern farmers are considering large-scale feeding of beef cattle.

This publication focuses on information to help cattlemen make decisions about building-construction options such as monoslope versus gable roof, bedded versus concrete slats, and other options.
