Beef Roundtable: Get ready for breeding season

Breeding season is approaching and now is the time to begin planning your pre-breeding management. Among the pre-breeding chores are vaccinating and deworming your cattle before turnout. In this month’s Beef Roundtable, Bill Clymer, a commercial cow-calf producer and consulting livestock parasitologist from Canyon, Texas and Dan Grooms, a veterinarian in the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at Michigan State University, discuss the pre-breeding plan and how a vaccination and deworming program fit in.

The Beef Roundtable is a joint project with BEEF and Purdue University. It’s a monthly  video podcast that features some of the top leaders in the beef industry co-hosted by Ron Lemenager, Extension beef specialist at Purdue University and BEEF Senior Editor Burt Rutherford.

In addition to being available on beefmagazine.com, the sessions can be viewed at www.beefroundtable.com, on the Beef Roundtable YouTube channel and iTunes.
