A new University of Wisconsin study is working to get farmers who raise dairy steers, particularly Holstein steers, more bang for their buck.

This information may also be helpful in determining which market venue is the most profitable, while helping farmers avoid costly discounts.

The project will collect a variety of feeding and management data to help form future recommendations.
