Abstract

The study was based on the marketing margin and marketing costs of fattened cattle in Toakat-Turkey with the help of primary data collected randomly from 52 farmers. In the study it was determined that fattened cattle production was not profitable especially in domestic and cross-bred cattle. But the net profit of exotic cattle enterprises was found as positive (15.91 YTL / farm). Marketing margins for domestic, cross-bred and cultural cattle fattening were 42.18%, 41.18% and 42.18% respectively.
