From the Back Cover:

Beef Production and Management Decisions, fourth edition, is the most comprehensive beef cattle management text available on the market today. Taking a management-systems approach, the new edition identifies the primary biological principles that contribute to raising productive beef cattle.

Some features of this edition include:
  • Takes an updated look at the cattle cycle and the factors that influence it
  • Adopts a more ecologically-based viewpoint toward U.S. geography
  • Focuses on how Integrated Resource Management principles apply to the beef industry
  • Provides in-depth coverage of how beef producers can lower production costs and increase profitability
