With winter months ahead, keeping an eye on herd body condition will be essential to easy calving and re-breeding, says Jason Cleere, Texas A&M beef cattle specialist.
Cleere says lack of proper nutrition can hamper re-breeding efforts on a cow-calf operation.
"Nutrition is extremely important to the cow-calf operation," Cleere says. "The way we manage cattle to calve at two years of age and have a calf every year, you've got to have some nutritional management out there for them."
He says one of the most important things producers should do is look at the body condition of their cows.
