|IT'S THE PITTS -- IT TAKES AN ARMY|
|06/17/2013 05:17 PM|
One of my favorite magazines is the National Junior Livestock Exhibitor and it's not just because they have carried my column for years. It's just that underneath my cowboy exterior lies the heart of a steer jock.
|IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND HEAT STRESS CONDITIONS IN CATTLE|
|06/14/2013 03:45 PM|
When I stuck my head out of the back door this morning at 6:15 am and immediately broke into a sweat I came to the conclusion that summer had, in fact, begun in Northeast Texas. That, plus later that morning spending time looking at a pasture full of stocker cattle with a client and largely discussing fly control issues. The evidence is stacked that summer has arrived.

|IT'S THE PITTS -- CREATE - A - CRISES|
|05/23/2013 03:42 PM|
Realizing that most people don't understand the role that cattle and sheep play in sequestering carbon, fertilizing the ground, breaking the surface crust to prevent runoff, reducing fuel loads to prevent catastrophic fires, and creating high quality protein from grass, I recently made a phone call to 1-800-GOT-RICH.
|REBUILD COW HERD WITH IMPROVED BEEFMASTER FEMALES|
|05/23/2013 03:41 PM|
It is clear that the US beef cow population is as low as ever. The prolonged drought across the nation, high feed costs and other competition for the land use has certainly changed the dynamics of the beef industry as we once knew it to be. The traditional ten year beef market cycle may be challenged moving forward. These interesting dynamics lead me to believe that there is a tremendous opportunity awaiting us in the beef cattle industry. More specifically, Beefmaster cattle should be part of the upcoming herd rebuilding that is bound to occur sooner than later.

Hooter was feeling like some sort of zoo exhibit, sitting on a makeshift stage in the middle of Uncas Bingelmeyer's sale ring, which was itself a study in jerry-rigged pipes and boards. It was stout, though.

|UNDERSTANDING FORAGE AND FIBER DIGESTION IS A DAUNTING TASK|
|05/21/2013 05:53 PM|
Over the last few weeks we have been taking an in-depth look at forage quality and fiber digestion in beef cattle. It becomes obvious that this is not a simple subject and that developing a comprehensive understanding of forage and fiber digestion and utilization in cattle (ruminants) is a daunting task.
These are a few of the topics being discussed on the Q&A Boards.
