For many cattle producers, the end of the calving season is in sight. Badger, Minnesota farmer and rancher Shayne Isane is just over two-thirds done. “We’ve got a couple hundred on the ground. Thankfully, the nice weather has allowed us to turn pairs out recently,” says Isane. With extended cold and snow, some cattlemen are running low on hay and feed supplies. However, Isane still has a good amount of corn silage left. “We also use some beet pulp in our rations. So we should be fine in those departments, but feeding a little longer than we’d like to.”
