Cattle and Calf Losses to Predators: Feeder Cattle Enterprises in the United States

C. Kerry Gee
1979 Journal of range management  
National losses to predators of beef cattle and calves on farms and ranches with 20 or more cows and market feeder calves or yearlings were investigated. Data are from a sample survey of about 1,800 producers in five major feeder cattle regions. Losses to dogs, coyotes, and all other predators were estimated. Percentage losses are small, but financial losses reach into millions of dollars.
