Here in Wisconsin the old dairymen will convert to Beef and try to raise their cattle like they did the dairy, in confinement. Generally they don't do it long, they just stop farming and rent their crop acreage out.

With dairy you have a monthly income and you keep the income producer. That's really the big financial difference between the two. When you sell a beef calf crop you have to wait months for another payday. But the feed suppliers want to get paid every month.

At one time I had a partner that raised alfalfa for a living, he provided the calves and all the feed. I provided the facilities and day to day labor and managment. When we sold we each got a simple 50-50 split of the money. I don;t know if he made money, maybe it was a tax write off for him, but I sure did well the arrangment.
