TAKING A LOOK AT 2017 FOR CATTLE PRODUCERS
It's time to drag out the trusty crystal ball and take a look at what 2017 has in store for the beef cattle industry. For this to make sense we need to consider where we came from and how we got to where we are.
IT'S THE PITTS -- CATTLE TRAITING
Expected progeny differences (EPD's) have done wonders in improving the quality of our cattle. My only problem with EPD's is there aren't enough of them for traits that I'm most interested in.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- FEWER AND BIGGER
Whether the proverbial chicken or egg, another round of agricultural consolidation appears to be spurred along by suppliers dealing with narrow margins.
BLACK INK -- MAKING THE MOST OF IT
“Suppose we could only make 1 million cars. If the auto industry was limited for some reason, what would they do? Would they make small, cheap vehicles or big, premium, expensive cars?” An industry observer asked that question at a cattle feeders meeting this summer.
LATE WEANING HELPS AVOID EFFECTS OF HARSH WINTER
A growing number of stockmen are calving later in the year (April, May or June) rather than early, to be more in tune with nature. They have green grass at calving time and less need for harvested forage when the cow's nutritional needs are peaking during lactation.
NEW VETERINARY FEED DIRECTIVE TAKE EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2017
As of January 1, 2017, beef producers must comply with the new rule regarding use of antibiotics in feed. This rule is aimed at better management of certain antibiotics considered medically important to humans—putting them under more veterinary supervision. This is part of a larger movement to minimize development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

That's pretty good for a lightweight packer cow right now honestly.

Needs a step stool
He worked each heifer for about a day. He made it. My last jersey bred some big tall herefords he could barely reach. My neighbor said he would do back flips to get the job done. Never saw him but guess he did back flips.
