Introduction. Weaning is considered one of the most stressful periods in the productive life of a beef calf.

Our beef consultants have a passion for Nutritional management in beef cow-calf herds. book cattle, for quality nutrition. Under profitable systems of management, a mature beef cow should maintain her weight from fall to fall. Lactation requires more nutrients than gestation.
However, feeding beef cows more than is necessary for satisfactory production, such as is frequently done in purebred herds and show herds. Suckling beef calves are generally not supplemented during the summer grazing period, when milk and an increasing intake of forage provide their diet.
Deficiency of trace minerals may be a concern in some areas. Proper nutrition of the herd before calving should provide the calf with adequate reserves at birth.
Nutrition is the most important limiting factor of beef herd reproductive performance. An understanding of the principles underlying the nutritional management of breeding females is necessary, including a working knowledge of the different energy measuring systems commonly used and their applications for different classes of animals, activities, and feedstuffs.

“Nutrition has a huge impact on the performance of both the cow and the newborn calf,” said Ken Olson, Professor & SDSU Extension Beef Specialist. 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. Nutrition When developing a cow-calf nutritional pro-gram, examine all variables critically and attempt to optimize available feed resources.
Variables to consider should include cow size, milk production, body condition score, age, stage of gestation, weather, and growing conditions. If possible, divide the herd into groups with similar. Beef. Manitoba is the third largest beef producing province in Canada with about 12% of the national beef herd.
Our province’s vast natural grasslands are ideal for cow-calf production. About 98% of beef operations are cow-calf operations with the remaining 2% being commercial feedlots. Purchasing or raising replacement heifers is a systematic part of maintaining a beef cow- calf operation. Replacement heifers should ultimately grow into a productive, fertile female that produces a calf annually as part of the herd.
Many management decisions must be considered when selecting and raising replacement heifers. Information on beef cattle farming, cow calf operations, weaning calves, and raising grass fed beef. Find educational workshops and networking events for beef cattle farmers, plus access to the beef production and management online course.
Beef cattle production, whether on range, improved pasture, or in the feedlot, is most economic when feedstuffs are used effectively. Young growing grass or other high-quality pasture crops usually supply ample nutrients, such that mature and young growing cattle can consume sufficient good-quality mixed pasture (grasses and legumes) for normal growth and maintenance.
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). NAHMS Beef Reports: Beef Antimicrobial Drug Use and Antimicrobial Resistance on U.S. Cow-calf Operations, (pdf kb 2/12).

Although the NAHMS report notes that the beef herd was the primary source of income on only 14 percent of all operations included in its study, no analysis of data by herd size or relative importance of income from the cow-calf enterprise was done.
Despite some of the best pasture conditions in decades for many important cow-calf areas last year, beef cow slaughter moved much higher during the last four months of The result was a beef cow herd that was % smaller at the end of than when the year started.
