This week's theme on the BEEF Daily blog is going to focus on winter. We received our first snowfall over the weekend, and ready or not, the cold, snowy, icy weather changes the way we do things on the ranch. Whether you love it or hate it, winter weather brings certain challenges that ranchers must tackle, and this week, we are going to prep for the season.
Today, I have rounded up some of our top resources on this subject.
1. Tips For Stretching Your Winter Hay Resources
2. Winter Cow Management Starts Well Before Winter
3. Winter 2012 Will Be Much Like Winter 2011
4. Winter Bull Management Is Important For Breeding
5. Five Steps To Winter Feed Savings
Check out some of our previous articles, and stay tuned for a great contest later this week, where I will be giving away a $100 VISA Beef Bucks gift card to be used to purchase beef in restaurants or grocery stores. This prize is courtesy of the South Dakota Cattlemen's Auxiliary, a great organization of which I'm a member. We work year-round to promote beef to consumers through fun, promotional events, and we love to celebrate America's favorite protein with Beef Bucks!
By the way, how's the weather in your neck of the woods? Has snowy weather hit your area yet?
