A survey of Minnesota cow-calf and feedlot producers in 2020 and 2021 analyzed the beef industry in Minnesota to determine how beef cattle are raised, retained on farm sites, and moved within the system. The University of Minnesota collaborated with the Minnesota Beef Council to describe the Minnesota beef industry in terms of movement and management decisions in order to direct future research and identify key issues specific to Minnesota's beef producers. There is also a summary of this report available.
