  • October: Time to identify and fortify calves

    For fall calving cows, the calving season is in full swing. Check cows frequently. Identify calves.
    For others, it is time to get everything ready for the fall-breeding season. Line-up semen and supplies and get your bulls ready to go. Put fall-calving cows on accumulated pasture before the breeding season.
    For spring calving herds have a pregnancy examination of cows. Winter feeding costs can be minimized by eliminating open cows prior to winter feeding. Also, obtain weaning weights of your calves.
