Early evening feeding helps manage calving

POST ROCK ANSWERS - K-STATE RESEARCH & EXTENSION

This time of year most of the coffee shop talk revolves around calving season. Why wouldn’t it? It kicks off the beef production cycle (in a loose sense), we watch the cow herd closer than any other time of year it seems, and pay much more attention to our nutrition program. On top of that, there’s calving schools to attend, conversations with your local vet, and many other things that all bring our mind back to the fact that it is just about time to start calving.

Some argue that when feeder steer prices are projected to be high, calf watches are more intense; others say that periods of low prices make it integral for us to protect every potential dollar of income. The reality is: it is always imperative that we do all we can. We can all agree that without a live calf, it is pretty hard to make money in this business.
