Coming off a tough 2019, there are things within the cowherd that producers should be watch for and adjust accordingly. South Dakota State University Extension cow/calf specialist Olivia Amundson says the first step is to make sure cows are in and maintain body condition. “Also, producers should look into the breeding season. Are we letting the calving season get strung out? Focus on bunching the cowherd and getting them calving with a shorter breeding season.” Because of the unfavorable calving weather the past couple years, many cattle producers have changed their calving schedule. For those producers looking at pushing back calving, Amundson says it is a large adjustment to make. “Make sure your talking to the right people from both a nutrition and reproduction standpoint.” Amundson has more in this RRFN interview.
