“Let’s give her one more year…” – When to cull in your cattle herd

Culling the Herd

Culling is a practice that should be considered after each calving season to maximize profitability and production. When deciding which brood cow to cull, pregnancy rate should be an important factor.

Stockpiling Forages
Stockpiling is allowing forages to grow during the late summer and fall for cattle to graze during the winter. This practice can lower production cost due to the fact that less hay is used to feed cattle. Tall Fescue is an ideal grass for stockpiling.

To read more about Stockpiling, read Phil Rucker's article on stockpiling, http://yadkin.ces.ncsu.edu/2014/08/stockpiling-forages-cheaper-than-feeding-hay-2/
