West Central Cattlemen’s Day set for Jan. 21
Dry conditions make us step back and re-evaluate our operations. You’ve always turned out pairs on summer grass, but what if the summer grass didn’t grow? You have made tough decisions and wonder now, with wetter conditions, how you should restock your herd. Weeds in your pasture have exploded- is this normal or noxious?
The annual West Central Cattlemen’s Day series will be held in North Platte and Curtis Nebraska. UNL Extension Educators, Kansas State Extension Agents and Colorado State Regional Extension Specialists will cover topics, with research to back it up. If your area is still experiencing drought, or if you wonder what to do in the next drought, this series will contain useful information.
Topics to be covered are:
· Managing Your Pasture Closely
· Cow Size –Calf Purpose
· Nutrition for Profit
· Problem Weeds In Range and Pasture
· Rebuilding the Herd
· Buying Replacement Cattle What to Look For
· Pasture Inventory/Assessment and Checking for Poisonous Plants
