The specific objective is to show relative costs and returns from alternative cropping systems for selected situations on beef cattle farms in the dark-fired tobacco area of the Northern Highland Rim of Tennessee, including Cheatham, Dickson, Montgomery and Robertson counties. The scope of the study is confined to the cow-calf system of beef cattle production In this area. No attempt Is made to compare all farm alternatives, but merely to compare several decidedly different forage alternatives In beef cattle production.
