Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch

By Rayford Pullen

Spring has sprung, and with it comes the best grazing of the year. For that reason, we need our cattle to be in position to take advantage of what it has to offer. We need the next 120 days to get our spring-calving cows bred back, our fall-born calves growing like a weed, our spring-born calves turning it on, and all the while putting those pounds back on our cows they gave up during the winter.

Cattle performance boils down to nutrition, and when we look around at what nature does with wildlife, it is no wonder spring is so essential for the year-round success of our operations. While we may do the best job managing our resources, year in and year out it seems as though we are only as smart as the weather and markets allow us to be.
