December 10, 2015

beef dec

It’s December!!! 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,summarize herd records for the year and compare to previous year to determine the production direction of the herd. December is a good month to summarize your your financial records. Determine your cost for mineral, supplemental feed, vet medicine, fertilizer, hay, weed control, etc. Knowing your cost to maintain a cow per year is very important and will aid in marketing decisions.

Hay management:

Protect hay when feeding to reduce waste. Feed hay in rings to reduce hay waste. Unrolling hay increases hay waste unless it is done on a limit-feeding basis.
