10 resolutions for cattle producers in 2019

January 7, 2019

As we embark on another year, consider these 10 resolutions from K-State's Beef Cattle Institute to help keep your cattle and your operation in top condition through 2019!

 


1: Increase oversight of bulls.
Conduct breeding soundness exams (BSEs) regularly and make sure your bulls are out there doing their job.


2: Keep better records.
Preferably on each individual animal. Not just production and reproduction, but economics and finances, too.


3: Implement a body condition score (BCS) collection system.
Set a target to evaluate and collect scores two to four times per year.


4: Shoot for fewer days of harvested-forage feeding.
Maximize your grazing days.


5: Troubleshoot handling facilities.
Headgate that hangs up? Fences that need mended? Identify your problem areas and get them fixed.


6: Give your facilities a walk through when you’re not working cattle.
Less stress for everyone.


7: Participate in CattleTrace.
Get involved.


8: Have a plan for calving season.
Include dystocia troubleshooting and have your facilities ready for 2019 calves.


9: Implement strategies.
Think grazing management, herd health and calving management.


10: Increase your expert network.
Establish and maintain relationships with industry experts. These might include veterinarians, economists, bankers, geneticists and many others.


This list was originally broadcast on the BCI CattleChat podcast. Listen to the episode here.
