Measuring Things We Can Manage in the Beef Cow Herd
Summer is a time when we can relax and enjoy some recreation activities with family and friends. However, as we get into the warm summer months remember to look at a few things that can have a significant impact on profitability of your cow herd. We can “manage” these things by measuring and monitoring them. There are tools that can help with both measuring and improving the condition of these items.
- Body condition of the cows and especially first calf heifers
- Condition of the pasture
- Hay Inventory
