The nutritionists and consultants at Great Plains Livestock Consulting Inc., Eagle, Neb., offer these timely reminders for beef cattle during this winter season:

  • Clean manure out of pens.
  • Make sure feed is analyzed and rations are in place.
  • Now is a good time to stretegically deworm cows after we have had a good freeze.
  • Make sure you pregnancy test all cows and cull open famles in order to save feed resources.
  • Sort cows by body condition adn feed groups accordingly in order to get thin cows back into better shape before spring calving.
  • Evaluate bulls and begin to make bull buying decisions for next year.
