    Grazing Pastures with Johnson Grass

    Everything out here has been drought stressed since June. No fertilizer or rain. I was actually just waiting to pull them if we were to get a rain. Grass was mature, mixed in with klein grass.

    Grazing Pastures with Johnson Grass

    Ive never had an issue with JG until this year. Lost 14 cows in early August. Had just moved cows from a JG field to another but the new field had a draw running through it that I assume had enough moisture down there it to keep it growing. Kind of a transition area. Tests came back and that...

    Cancer eye

    Make sure there is no blood or puss coming out otherwise you'll end up paying lonestar. If they catch it before it gets to the floor they put it back on your trailer. I know a packer that would be closer that will take bad eyes unlike LS.

    Wheat pasture grazing

    I wouldn't run bred heifers on wheat through calving. But you shouldn't have any problems with cows, we do it every year if our wheat is doing good enough. If you are worried about calving problems I'd start looking at replacing your cows.

    First year results

    I plan on sticking to the timed protocols from here on out. Maybe someday I'll have the time to watch heat, but I'd rather get them all done at once and turn a bull in. I'll keep an eye out for the new protocols, my rep hadn't mentioned anything.
