Presented by the Center for Agricultural Profitability at the University of Nebraska
Early weaning beef calves can be a helpful management practice for many cow-calf operations, especially where quality forages may be lacking due to drought and other factors. How you manage the calves depends largely on the age of the animals and the producer’s goals. This webinar will explore different options and best practices for early weaning, covering nutrition, costs and potential benefits. The presenters will cover management-related topics like digestibility, passage rate through the rumen, vaccinations and feeding. The business side of the presentation will cover breakeven costs for feeding early weaned calves, risk management tools, marketing and more.
