The purpose of this thesis is to make an evaluation of the competitive position of the Utah livestock industry by use of a linear programming model (MPS- 360). This is on the basis of the least cost means of production to meet the quantity demanded of the livestock products. This is accomplished by dividing the United States into six regions where Utah is one of these regions to enable careful consideration of Utah's agricultural enterprises.
The agricultural products used in the analysis are beef, pork, broilers, turkeys, eggs and milk.
The feeds used for production are barley, wheat, corn, oats, milo, hay, and 44 percent soybean meal.
