How Does Your Herd Stack Up?

Oct 28, 2020

Fall is a busy time for cattleman, harvest, weaning and selling of the calf crop, and preparation for the months ahead. I challenge you this year, to consider a new annual routine when it comes to fall herd management. Take the time this fall to subjectively body condition score (BCS) the cow herd on the scale from 1 (emaciated) to 9 (obese) and assess the distribution of condition scores across the cow herd.
