Beef Talk: Cull deep enough to find those freeloaders
Today, with an aggressive bidding for weigh-up cows and market bulls, why take the risk of pushing a cow an extra year? As condition and body weight decline, so does value, but managerial inputs and labor increase. The bottom line: Cows need to survive, produce and repeat the cycle...

Baumgarten: Donors deserve thanks for helping ranchers weather Atlas
There is something to be said about running a ranch. Ranching isn’t just a business; it’s a way of life. I’m not saying other professions aren’t important. Maybe it is just because I grew up raising cattle that I’m so particular about the industry. When you work cattle,...

Beef Talk: Time to sort the thin, young or old cows
The cow is the source of production, so keeping her in shape is critical. Today’s point is that cows will regain body condition easier when production demands are low. Also, as a general rule, when the living have adequate food but are limited to little activity, weight gain occurs....

Beef Talk: When a cow is determined to be market beef, sell her
Got cows to sell? If you do, sell them. You only have to look at the prices to know the market is looking for beef. Producers always have some cows to sell if they want to. Current discussions focus on increasing cow numbers, but it may be ill-advised to change cow culling schemes....

Beef Talk: Cow herd expansion needs land
Why not more cows? That is a good question because the beef industry is begging for cows. To do that, the cow-calf producer needs more cows to expand, the feedlot producer needs more calves and purveyors need product. Do I keep more cows? That is a difficult question producers must...
