Wheat-Pasture Calves Won’t Necessarily Fit In A Certain Weight ClassWheat-Pasture Calves Won’t Necessarily Fit In A Certain Weight Class

Winter wheat is improving in the Southern Plains, and the market for calves to graze on that wheat is heating up. That demands that wheat pasture operators look carefully at markets and value of gain for the different weight classes of cattle. Prices for feeder cattle in the region have moved up, as has the slide or roll-back for heavier cattle classes. Couple that with wheat that's somewhat delayed for its ability to provide pasture and you need to examine your options carefully for winter pasture, says Derrell Peel, Oklahoma State University Extension livestock marketing specialist.
