THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- DIFFERENT STRIPES
02/24/2017 04:31 PM

A.I. CAN CATAPULT BEEF BREEDING PROGRAMS FORWARD
02/24/2017 04:31 PM
The first use of artificial insemination was accomplished by Arab Sheiks who wanted to utilize bloodlines of tribal enemies.

PRODUCERS CAN MAXIMIZE PREGNANCY RATES USING A.I.

Artificial insemination (AI) offers cattle producers the opportunity to use semen from high-accuracy, genetically superior sires at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a herd bull with similar genetics.

INTEREST IN LEGEND LESPEDEZA CONTINUES TO GROW
02/16/2017 04:41 PM
Predictions swirling around for 2017 include very little improvement for beef prices and the possibility of some extended drought conditions in some regions. That means that every serious manager facing this possible scenario had better be looking for ways to manage on both sides of the ledger.

BLACK INK -- THE PAYOFF FROM PROGRESS
02/13/2017 05:01 PM
There's always something more to do. After the holidays, things will slow down. Nah, maybe after calving, branding and breeding. But then, summer comes and there's all that hay to make when the sun is shining, fences to build and cedars to eliminate (or insert your own region-specific fair-weather task).

Feedyard Board ? Re: Need steer to gain 280 by August 5.
That calf looks young in one picture, and older in the other. Not sure what age it is. His over all structure is not screaming growth oriented. Does she have a 4h agent, or ffa advisor that could...

I don't know how many stockers you run in a year, or how many pairs you have (not asking either), but if you have very many it would be worth paying your accountant to project your taxes in late Oc...
