The objective of this study was to obtain national estimates of the prevalence of dystocia and the frequency of selected calving management practices in beef herds. These national estimates will aid not only in the. Beef cattle are raised specifically fro meat that is called beef. The goal of beef cattle production is to select a beef animal that produces a large amount of meat. This goal also must include a quality product, which is a result of a high standard of health care and nutritional program. Dairy cattle are raised specifically for milk.

These major beef cow-calf producing States represented percent of U.S. operations with beef cows and percent of U.S. beef cows. One of the goals of the Beef study was to collect information on cattle identification (ID) practices. Primary data were used to determine differences in management practices among two groups of Oklahoma cow-calf producers based on herd size and cattle income dependence.

Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS) Beef ’97 report established a variety of benchmarks for the nation’s cow-calf industry in areas such as information and management practices, breeding and calving management, production management and disease.

Although cattle herds can be found in every county in the state, the greatest concentration of beef cattle production is in the Ozark Mountains of for roughly 54 percent of the total beef cow numbers.

Benton and Washington Counties are the two largest counties in terms of all cattle and calves numbers. Joao Vendramini, Philipe Moriel, in Management Strategies for Sustainable Cattle Production in Southern Pastures, Cow–Calf. Cow–calf operations make up the biggest beef cattle production system in the I Corridor.

After weaning, usually from July through December, most beef calves are shipped to western states for stocker grazing and eventual feedlot residence. OMAF Factsheet "Basic Beef Cattle Nutrition" /10 OMAF Factsheet "Beef Cow-Calf Nutrition" / Pregnancy Checking.

This can be combined with other management practices ie. parasite control, re-tagging etc. to reduce # of trips through the chute. Introduction to the Cow-Calf Management Guide Reproduction Sound reproduction probably is more important than any other management category.

One measure of reproductive efficiency for any type of cow-calf operation is the percent annual calf crop. The primary goal of beef producers is to produce one live calf per cow each year.

Nationally, the. Beef cow production cycle. For nutritional and most management purposes, the annual production cycle for the beef cow can be divided into 4 phases: Pre-calving, Postpartum, Lactating and Pregnant, and Gestation. Each one of these phases is physiologically unique and each has its own set of nutritional requirements (Figure 1).

If you're looking for a solid resource manual on cow-calf production, consider the Cow-Calf Management Guide and Cattle Producer's Library. Boasting more than fact sheets on all aspects of beef-cattle production compiled in a four-in., three-ring binder, it's the most complete set of up-to-date material available in the beef industry.

Each fact sheet is peer-reviewed by state Extension. Beef producers who purchase calves to background or place in a feedlot often purchase calves directly from a cow/calf operator. They may also purchase calves through feeder calf sales.

Most buyers will pay more for calves that have been weaned, dewormed and vaccinated because the likelihood of calves getting sick is greatly reduced.

the farm. Most beef cow-calf production occurs on large farms, but cow-calf production is not the primary enterprise on many of these farms. Findings suggest that operators of beef cow-calf farms have a diverse set of goals for the cattle enterprise.

Keywords: Beef cow-calf production, farm income, animal traceability, Agricultural. However, feeding beef cows more than is necessary for satisfactory production, such as is frequently done in purebred herds and show herds, is also undesirable.

Large accumulations of body fat may lead to lowered conception rates, difficult calving, a lower calf crop, and a shorter life span for the cow. • Inmore than 80 percent of beef cow-calf producers had some type of animal identifi cation system in place, such as branding or ear tagging.

But, nearly a quarter of beef cow-calf producers with 20 or more cows reported a lack of familiarity with the National Animal Identifi cation System (NAIS), and only about a quarter had their. Data for Part 1: Beef Cow/Calf Herd Management Practices in the United States were collected from beef producers September 29 through October 9, The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) collaborated with VS to select a producer sample that was statistically designed to provide inferences about the nation’s cow/calf population.

cow-calf producer raises most of the potential steers and heifers for harvest. The other type of operation is known as seedstock breeders. These producers keep herds for purebred breeding stock and provide replacement bulls or semen for cow-calf operations. Components Components of a cow-calf operation include pasture ground.

The state average for herds in the FINBIN database for was $ Total livestock costs listed in Figure 2 averaged $89 per cow. Total direct costs (feed, vet and medicine, and livestock costs) averaged $ per cow. The beef cow herd’s share of overhead costs came to $ per cow.beef cows on 26, farms, which means the average beef cow-calf operation has 36 cows.

Eighty percent of the beef cow-calf farms have less than 50 cows, which is typi­ cal of the southeastern United States. Results from the Arkansas Beef Audit indicated producers with small cow-calf herds placed a high value on.The conception rate in most autumn-calving beef herds is satisfactory.

This indicates that although the cows are being joined in winter the level of nutrition is generally adequate. But if the level of nutrition is depressed because of increased stocking rate or a poor season, cow bodyweight and condition will fall, particularly in winter.
