The objective of this study was to apply the research tool of linear programing to the analysis of ranch organization in the sandhills area of Nebraska. A hypothetical ranch unit was synthesized and placed into two models, one utilizing a static, single period analysis, and the other using an application of dynamic polyperiod programing.Included in the analysis were a number of production alternatives, as well as opportunities for resource expansion and intensification of resource use.
