Bull selection by the numbers
When it comes to picking the best sire for your cattle, using statistics for your decision is no bull. "So you've got benchmarks," Kris Ringwall, director of the North Dakota State University Research Extension Center, said Thursday. "Benchmarking is a huge part of understanding where...

Ringwall: Sad day: Life has its own set of rules
Perhaps it is just age, but with time, the passing of life seems to be more dominating than the beginning of life. Life is a continuum, neverending,...

Extension Center land for still sale after initial bids come in low
After an unsuccessful first bidding process, 100 acres of land currently owned by the Dickinson Research Extension Center is, once again, open for bid. The land, which borders 21st Street West, was originally divvied up into five 20-acre plots and open for written bid until July...

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...

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: A time to reflect and ponder
It was a time to reflect during a trip home to help Dad. After 91 years on the farm, he was moving to an assisted living facility. The night drive across western North Dakota was quite interesting. I remembered all the times I had driven these roads hoping to see another car. Things...

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: Do you have some bulls to cull?
Now is a good time to look at the bull pen, even though it probably is empty. In fact, one would have to wonder why if there is a bull in the pen. For many, the bulls are left on pasture and rounded up with the cows and calves as fall progresses. Throughout the summer, various bulls...

Beef Talk: Wet and dry; there is no constant
The use of the word “sustainability” often is an indication that someone is searching for a simple, normal approach to life. In other words, the ability to fit in without the pressures of uncertainty. Is that possible? Can a cattle operation be “sustainable” in the long run...

Beef Talk: Records: A positive opportunity
As summer appears to be waning and fall soon will be upon us, I can remember a former co-worker, Harlan Hughes, saying; “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” The meaning never changes. The statement is true because you can’t manage what you don’t measure. As producers...
