Beef Talk: Are your cows ready to rebreed?
By Kris Ringwall The question of the day: Are the cows ready to breed? For many cattle operations, the calving season got started in mid-March, so it will be in full swing soon. I hope the nutritional plan is in place and the cows are doing fine. Although nutritional adjustments...

Does the early bird get the worm
When should the calving season begin? In simple terms, the question could be: "Does the early bird get the worm?" Following a bird hatch, remnants of abandoned nests can be found. There may be indications that not all of the birds survived the incubation or early upbringing. Although...

The Future of Beef II -- Midsized Challenges
One can always expect change, particularly if one is in the middle because the middle seldom stays the same. The middle may be comfortable for some, but for others, there is a distinct desire to move. Some do not want to stay in the middle because, for many, our upbringing taught...

Beef Talk: New things are happening, stay tuned
Is the subject of animal identification still relevant? The thought behind the comment was the news that the U.S. Department of Agriculture was not going to pursue an animal identification system. That is a very good question from the haze of the debate over animal identification....

Beef Talk: Source and age verification, ouch!
Source and age verification has a bite to it. As producers, many of the management discussions are relatively painless. The discussion is free and opinions often are welcomed. Sometimes a particular view of a subject can change when other opinions are brought to the table. The beef...

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

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...
