For many years, Auburn University has been at the forefront of stocker cattle grazing system research. Numerous studies have been conducted comparing average daily gains and animal gains per acre with various forages and forage systems. Auburn Extension Forage Specialist Don Ball and Extension Economist Walt Prevatt recently completed a detailed summary of 37 grazing studies in which they compared pasture costs per pound of stocker gain for each of these different pasture forage systems. Total pasture costs per pound of stocker gain ranged from $.30 to $1.49.
