Prep Your Calves For The Feedyard

There are a number of things cow-calf producers can do to prepare calves for their time in a feedyard, says Mark Sebranek, general manager at Irsik & Doll Feed Yard at Garden City, KS. A sound health and weaning program can add value to calves because it makes for healthier animals that are better able to withstand the challenges of a feedyard environment. And, he says, don't forget age and source verification, which is still adding value to cattle.
