ABSTRACT Cow-calf enterprises provide significant opportunity for supplemental income to small-scale farmers in Appalachia, despite considerable production and economic uncertainty. To assess the viability of pasture-raised beef systems as alternatives to conventional production and marketing paradigms, stochastic budgets representative of several hypothetical producers of each type were constructed and evaluated via Monte Carlo techniques in terms of relative profitability and risk… CONTINUE READING
