Checklist: Prepare for winter


Your calves are now weaned.
Bull calves have been sorted for either breeding or castrating.
Heifers can be sorted for either breeding replacements or as feedlot extras.

Pregnancy check those cows now? Cull out the “empties” to maintain a better level of herd reproductive efficiency.

Any cleanup bulls not doing the pregnancy job? Cull them too. Fertility is our main source of profit not growth rates on any pre-selected group of calves.

Do a last walk around the pastures. Any reseeding needed?

We can help with that, by reserving the pasture mixes you will need in spring.
