The economic efficiency of several beef production systems on pasture was investigated under different marketing strategies. All calculations were carried out with the computer program ECOWEIGHT. No one of the considered production systems was profitablewithout governmental subsidies for the assumed economic input values. The subsidies granted when fulfilling a set of conditions served for balancing the economic loss in systems selling all surplus weaned calves outside. A profitability of 10 to 25 % was reached for this marketing strategy in dependency on the production system. When integrating feedlot, only the purebred system with mating female replacement at an early age (about 15 months) and selling breeding bulls showed profitability, but at a low level (5%). All other systems produced at a loss even when including governmental subsidies.
