Yearling bulls with good shoulder widths correlates with uniform gestation periods, birth weights, better calving ease and more uniform weaning weights. In cows. Shoulder width should not exceed the width of the rump by more than +/- half an inch (cm). Too deep and wide a shoulder leads to reduced femininity and lack of good milk production%(35). Now that the drought is over, there are several reasons to rebuild your herd.
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.

found that heifers calving at 30 months of age had a rearing cost ~€ (£) greater than heifers calving at 24 months. In the present study for heifers calving at 30 months the mean total rearing costs were on average £ higher than for those calving at 24 by: If first-calf heifers do experience dystocia, a calving ease score from 1 to 5 (American Hereford Association) can be documented in the calving book.

A brief review of the effect of rearing intensity and age at calving on calving performance is given partly based on the report from the EEC seminar, ‘The early calving of heifers and its impact on beef production’. Normally heifers have 2 to 4 times higher calf mortality than older : J.

A general rule early calving of heifers and its impact on beef production book thumb for feeder space is to provide 18 to 22 inches for calves up to pounds, 22 to 26 inches per head for calves pounds to market weight, 26 to 30 inches per head for mature cows, and 14 to 18 inches per head for calves.
If you have feed available at all times, these sizes can be decreased. Introduction. With the expected increase in demand for beef over the next few decades, 1 reproductive performance of beef cattle will not only determine the overall efficiency of cow-calf operations and the United States (US) beef industry, but will significantly impact the world's food supply.
The production of beef cattle has become a more efficient process during the past few Author: Pedro L.P. Fontes, Nicola Oosthuizen, G.

Recent Beef Webinar. In another study in southern Alberta, Canada, a spring-calving herd of beef cows, 15 breeding bulls, 60 replacement heifers, and steers were the basis for a comparison of whole-farm greenhouse emissions between calf-fed and yearling-fed. The Ideal Calving Date for Raising Cattle - Learn how to choose the perfect calving season to fit your grazing program and to maximize beef cattle fertility in your cattle herd.
Day Cattle Breeding - Learn why using a day breeding season is an essential grazing management strategy that will boost beef cattle fertility in your herd.
In addition, decisions taken earlier in the production cycle can influence calf viability, for example, choice of sire and sire breed, particularly beef breeds, use of sexed semen, age and weight at service in heifers, vaccination of the dam and nutrient intake in Cited by: Implications.
Rearing dairy heifers from birth to first calving is an expensive investment which takes a significant time to repay. Using data from dairy farms, we calculated an average cost for rearing a heifer to calving of £, or £/ by: 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. on the stud book. You must keep accurate records and register the desirable purebred calves to be retained for breeding stock.
If you raise bulls for the beef industry, you must develop a selection program based on characteristics of economic importance, such as fertility, mothering ability, ease of calving, growth rate, and carcass merit. Discussion.- Nutrition and Management of the Dam in Relation to Calving Problems.

agriculture economy. InU.S. per capatia beef consumption represented % (67 lbs per person; billion total pounds) of total U.S. meat consumption (USDA, ), and the retail value of beef production was $74 billion (USDA, ).
Therefore production of live offspring for beef production is important to the. The economic arguments for two year calving were put by Chris Coxon from DairyCo, who said that the cost to a farm of replacement heifers was mainly driven by age at first calving and culling rate.
Failure to control both of these factors led some farmers to rear heifers for as long as they milked them, placing a heavy financial burden on the farm. Using beef heifers and sheep as animal models, his laboratory integrates whole animal physiology with cellular and molecular biology to benefit both the livestock industry as well as human reproductive health.
Cardoso will be talking about how beef cattle attain puberty in his presentation at the ARSBC Conference. George Perry. CATTLE CARE & HANDLING GUIDELINES 9 Cows • It is desirable for cows to have a BCS of at least 4 before the calving season.
• During the calving season, cows should be checked regularly for calving difficulties. First-calf heifers may require more frequent observation and care. • Producers should consider contacting a veterinarian for File Size: 1MB. The occurrence of twin calving in Holstein Friesian cattle is 3–5%.
Reproductive problems found before and after the time of calving lead to serious economic losses. The authors’ aim was to form a compilation of data regarding the cause and effects of twin calving on dairy cows by comparing the reproductive performance of cows before and after calving twins vs.
single calves and also Author: András Gáspárdy, James Sheridan, Melinda Ari, László Gulyás. As long as you would still have enough replacement heifers left on the farm for your herd numbers and you start breeding by size, selling open heifers is a very viable option.
For example, a cow dairy with a 35 percent annual cull rate would only need 70 total heifers to maintain herd size if the age at first calving is 24 months. Animal agriculture in North Dakota is dominated by cow-calf production. As of January 1,North Dakota hadbeef cows cattle in feedlots. Cow-calf production is the top ranked animal sector in North Dakota, and sale of cattle and calves ranked number four (behind wheat, soybeans, and corn) in farm receipts with a value of $.
