Economics Department formulated four cowcalf budgets. The Sandhills Cow/Calf Producer Budget is for a herd of 500 cows and the data is from a panel of producers in Cherry County. The remaining three budgets are the 50-cow herd located in the panhandle of the state, and the 300- and 750-head Cow Herd System generally located in and around Custer County. These last three budgets were compiled from producer survey data collected for this purpose. Budgets are available online at http:// farm.unl.edu/beef#budgets.
