In my neck of the woods, an onslaught of rain has flooded out many pastures and hay fields, leaving ranchers scrambling to find adequate resources for both the summer grazing months and winter feeding supplies. Droughts and floods can put producers in a bind when trying to meet the nutritional needs of their cow herds, and now BEEF is providing you with the information you need to capture the adequate grazing needs for your beef operation this summer.
BEEF magazine provides a new resources, the Grazing Bulletin Board, offering listings of pastures available for producers to consider taking advantage of. The listings provided have been submitted by those with forage-based, cattle-growing services to offer. BEEF shares this information as submitted by the respective producers as a free service. Ranchers can contact those listed directly via the contact information provided with each listing.
