* Note: Annual turnoff 2014 figures are either supplied by the entrant, or where indicated, estimated using a combination of one-time capacity, feedlot utilisation levels during the year and typical duration of feeding programs. Note that annual cattle turnover in feedlots using longfed programs, such as for Wagyu, will be considerably less than in feedlots of similar size feeding yearlings, for example.
