Steve Campbell, Three Keys to Easy-Keeping Cattle
Cattle industry veteran Steve Campbell understands the complexities of producing premium beef, but in this session he’ll describe the three keys to easy-keeping cows. He’ll explain how a cow’s shape affects her ability to digest what she eats, how the glandular function and butterfat levels of a cow affect how much she eats and how to visually identify those characteristics and how the length of time you leave a calf on her mother affects the development of the calf’s rumen. A more developed rumen can digest more out of every bite the animal eats for the rest of its life. Practical, hands-on advice from a seasoned producer.
