    During a study of range management at the Central Plains Experimental Range in northeastern Colorado, observations were made on the amount of shrink of yearling Hereford range cattle held overnight in a dry lot. As transactions with cattle often must consider shrink under somewhat similar conditions, this information will interest buyers and sellers alike.
