Feedlot Design Manual


This manual takes the feedlotter and consultants through the stages of selecting a suitable site, designing the feedlot and its facilities, their construction and the overall management of the project.

In this electronic version, 48 sections are divided into four main subject groups. Each section provides the relevant technical information, and is well illustrated with figures and photographs.
