Agricultural facilities are often the most difficult assignments an appraiser will be asked to tackle. Feedlot facilities are within that category, and no facility is exactly the same. This seminar reviews the underlying appraisal theory relative to facility appraisals and then applies the theory specifically to the valuation of a cattle feedlot. Applicable terminology, facility types and typical operations are presented, followed by discussion of the overall appraisal process beginning with problem identification, leading to the steps to complete and analyze a facility following the traditional approaches to value.
