Schwarz, Franz and Hassler, J.B. (1979) A forecasting-programming method for placement-sales decisions for a beef feedlot (Research Bulletin No. 286)
This bulletin reports on a practical multi-period linear programming procedure as a management tool for decisions on placements and marketings for a beef feedlot operating over time under market uncertainty. Although the conclusions were based on application to an individual firm with uniqueness in time and space, the model should be equally appropriate for any firm's production and marketing decisions through time.
