One of the largest expenses in a beef cattle production system is feed, specifically winter feed.
The average American gains one to five pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day due to all of the celebrations, eating and drinking.
Caring for dairy and beef cattle in winter requires extra care. Cattle can handle the cold pretty well so long as they have some type of windbreak available.
Fever is a topic I have written about in the past. It is such a common symptom yet there still seems to be misunderstanding about it so I wanted to talk about it again.
Thanksgiving is a day set aside as a holiday to give thanks for what we have. Traditionally, it has been celebrated in the fall to give thanks and show appreciation for the harvest.
