In a time of cheap corn prices and volatile cattle markets, focusing on effective management techniques – like feed bunk management – can improve efficiency and help producers make the most of already tight margins.
Iowa State University extension program specialist Erika Lundy said that's why the center has revised the existing fact sheet, Feed Bunk Management.
"As a supplement to this fact sheet, we also created a Feed Bunk Management Standard Operating Procedure as a reference to help feedlot employees create operation-driven guidelines and standards to ensure consistency in making feed delivery decisions to cattle," Lundy said. "Users are able to download this SOP and type information into the document to make it specific to their operations regardless of size or structure.”
