## Feedlot Profit Per Head Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Feedlot Profit Per Head.

- Where FP is the Feedlot Profit Per Head ($/head)
- FR is the total feedlot revenue ($)
- FC is the total feedlot costs ($)
- #H is the number of heads in feedlot

## How to Calculate Feedlot Profit Per Head?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Feedlot Profit Per Head.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total feedlot revenue ($). In this example, the total feedlot revenue ($) is given as 60 .
- Next, determine the total feedlot costs ($). For this problem, the total feedlot costs ($) is given as 20 .
- Next, determine the number of heads in feedlot. In this case, the number of heads in feedlot is found to be 10.
- Finally, calculate the Feedlot Profit Per Head using the formula above:

FP = (FR – FC) / #H

Inserting the values from above yields:

FP = (6000 – 200) / 10 = 580 ($/head)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total feedlot revenue ($) = 1000

total feedlot costs ($) = 400

number of heads in feedlot = 50

Entering these values and solving gives:

FP = (1000 – 40) / 50= 19.2** **($/head)
