Stocker Budget

The stocker budget is divided into two segments. The budget on the left is for the user to perform a break-even analysis for potential or actual scenarios involving the back grounding and grazing of stocker cattle. The budget on the right is a reverse stocker break even. After all data is entered, the budget will give the user the price that can initially be paid in order to achieve the performance goals of the user. Please remember when entering purchase or sale price to differentiate between fields asking for cwt or lbs.
