This research examined the economic feasibility of various value-added alternatives of major crop and livestock enterprises in Emery County, Utah. The results suggest that building a stockyard facility where feeder cattle could be sorted and pooled for sale would be a net economic benefit to the county. Building a 400-head capacity beefpacking plant would likely not be feasible in Emery County. Ajamljelly plant would likely be profitable ifit were built in Green River and its products sold in Moab as well as in the Green River area.
