BeefTalk: Review the report card
While memories of the calving season are still fresh in your mind (and your calving book is your reference book of choice), now is the time to review this year's calving distribution. Evaluate how your management is working. It takes a calf to be a cow-calf producer, so what does...

BeefTalk: We want to avoid using the word "baffling" for a good reason
The science and art of livestock selection can be baffling. If one does a quick check on the Internet for the meaning of baffling, one finds it means "to frustrate or check (a person) as by confusing or perplexing." That is a very relevant point. The art of livestock selection started...

Have you ever been around someone who knows everything? However, in this case, I mean those people who actually do know a good share of stuff. Granted, this is not a question concerning memory recall but an inquiry into how, as beef producers, we seek to obtain the answers we need...

BeefTalk: With every ear tag, there should be a cow attatched
At a recent meeting, the only item on the agenda was to determine what to print on next year's ear tags. What made the meeting exciting were the new tags the printing was going on. Animal identification is not new. North Dakota Beef Cattle Improvement Association members have...

BeefTalk: We Too Are Resting in Someone's Hand
There is a time to set aside the business of life and simply do. Even the best-run business, cattle or otherwise, cannot deny that, in the end, someone else is in control, regardless of who we are, and really does not ask for input. What may seem like important notes in our daily...

Beeftalk: Do you know your IMPS numbers?
Understanding beef is critical to how we, as producers, obtain value in the industry. Are we getting back the value we have worked to produce through genetic and managerial inputs? Are we simply selling calves and allowing that value to be dispersed to others? Are we getting our...

BeefTalk: Today's market preparation begins with an ear tag
Market and price are foremost in the minds of producers as they contemplate the fall roundup. The market watch can be nervy because market slippage can mean big dollars. Producers cannot control the base market. Only the market's rise and fall are left for the producer. The...

BeefTalk: One of five is not good enough
As fall approaches, producers are thinking about selling calves. This involves the associated management and health programs that go along with preparing calves for market. The empty pens mean cows and calves are still on grass, but that will change soon. Speaking of change,...

BeefTalk: Why are the raspberries still here?
In food production, things are never the same because many variables come into play on a daily basis. The other day I noticed the raspberry bushes were full of raspberries. Most would say that they are supposed to be. However, the real answer is that the raspberries are not supposed...
