BE PREPARED TO HANDLE CATTLE DURING WINTER
Winter weather if finally arriving and when it gets here for good we need to be prepared to handle and transport cattle appropriately.
GELBVIEH ASSOCIATION TO HOST SYMPOSIUM
All cattlemen and women are invited to attend the American Gelbvieh Association's (AGA) third annual commercial cattlemen's educational symposium titled Cattlemen's Profit Roundup.
STARTING A BACKGROUNDING PROGRAM TAKES PLANNING
Some ranchers hold calves over as yearlings to sell later/bigger, and some people buy light calves in the spring to put on grass and grow to a larger weight. Some put weaned calves into a confinement program--fed a growing ration until they are ready to go to a finishing facility.
THERE ARE CHALLENGES TO KEEPING FEEDLOT CALVES HEALTHY
It's harder today to keep calves healthy after they leave the ranch and enter a feedlot. Dr. Eugene Janzen (Assistant Dean, Clinical Practice, Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary) says there has been a lot of research in the past decades looking at pharmaceutics—vaccines and antibiotics.
TEXAS AG LOSSES FROM HARVEY ESTIMATED AT $200 MILLION
Hurricane Harvey, which decimated parts of South Central Texas and the upper Gulf Coast, caused more than $200 million in crop and livestock losses, according to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service economists.
IT'S THE PITTS -- DELIVER US FROM EVIL
Did you see where Amazon, the fourth most valuable company in the world, bought Whole Foods? This has the trillion dollar grocery industry all atwitter and even has Wal Mart shakin' in its shorts. So much so that it came up with the idea of delivering the groceries you order online right to your refrigerator.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- FLATTER BUT BROADER
While cattle markets since the first of the year continue to amaze, apparently widespread profits across industry sectors cloud the notion of how long and far the nation's cowherd will continue to expand.
BLOAT RISKS INCREASE WITH COOLER WEATHER AND FROST
Bloat generally occurs when there's a change to higher protein feeds, such as from grass to alfalfa, according to Dr. James England (University of Idaho Caine Center).
DEATH CAUSED BY TOXICITY IN HERDS CAN BE FRUSTRATING
Both nitrate/nitrite and ammonia/urea toxicity in cattle can cause multiple deaths in a herd with few clinical signs and few to no gross or microscopic lesions of animals who die. These deaths can be frustrating for farmers and veterinarians and can present a diagnostic challenge to pathologists.
ALABAMA CONNECTION SALE AVERAGES $4,552
The Alabama Connection Santa Gertrudis Sale was held October 7, 2017 in Cullman, Ala.
MID SOUTH BULL SALE AND NEAL FAMILY HEIFER SALE HELD
The Mid South Bull and Neal Family Commercial Heifer Sale was held September 15, 2017 in St. Francisville, La.
AUBURN RESEARCH AIMS TO DETERMINE HEIFER FERTILITY
The seeds for Paul Dyce's animal science research were planted early in his life, while working on the family farm in Ontario, Canada.
FAIR EXHIBITORS MUST FOLLOW GOOD HEALTH MANAGEMENT
Livestock show season can be a very exciting and busy time for exhibitors and their families. Even if you do not directly participate in livestock exhibitions, attending the Fair or helping your neighbor with their kid's projects can serve as a risk to the health of your own herd.
DO NOT IGNORE VACCINE FUNDAMENTALS
Even in this technological age, it's the simple things we do that are usually the most effective. You can buy a fancy, expensive pickup with all the gadgets but if you don 't maintain it right, it won't last. You can buy the best genetics, but if you don't manage them right they won't perform as expected. It's the same with our common management procedures. If we ignore the fundamentals, we will not achieve our purpose.
MAKE SURE CALVES GAIN IMMUNITY AGAINST DISEASE
Whether a person is fall calving or spring calving, making sure calves gain adequate immunity against disease is an important part of cattle management.
