Beef Cattle Tips-September

October 8, 2015

It’s October!!! Beef Cattle Tips is a monthly newsletter designed to remind you of timely production practices that could benefit your operation.  In this month’s issue,observe cattle closely for signs of Anaplasmosis. Extreme caution should be taken when approaching these cattle due to their tendency for aggression. Also, stress must be kept to a minimum when trying to administer treatment to prevent collapse and sudden death. Early detection is essential.

Forage / Grazing Tips:

  • Take soil samples
  • Strip graze warm-season stockpiled forages
  • Plant winter annual and clovers in warm-season grass sod
  • Defer grazing of stockpiled cool-season grasses until late November or early December.
  • Plant clover in short-grazed fescue early October
