The feed is one of the major costs in a feedlot. Feed efficiency in the beef industry covers a broad range of topics ranging from economic evaluation,  feed efficiency to the physiological and genetic bases of efficient conversion of feed to high-quality beef. Knowledge of feed efficiency or biological productivity will be a valuable resource for producers who wish to understand the complexities, challenges, and opportunities to reduce cost production.
