The Nebraska Advantage . . . BEEF

Nebraska's beef industry is an aggressive, dynamic business and the largest single industry in the state. Productive range and cropland support over 2 million cattle on feed daily and 1.9 million cows and heifers which calve annually. The abundant supply of water, plus generous feed and grain supplies, has supported the expansion of the state's feedlot industry to Nebraska's present level. Today, one in every five steaks purchased in the U.S. comes from Nebraska. Yearly cash receipts from cattle and calves total over $4.5 billion. Nebraska is the number one marketer of red meat in the U.S. and has over 7.5 million head of cattle processed annually. Nebraska's prominence in the nation's cattle industry is due, in part, to the rich natural resources in the state and to the willingness of the producers and cattle feeding operators to adapt to change. Cattle feeders in Nebraska are responsive to the demands of both their feeding customers and consumers, domestically and internationally. By using the latest in environmentally sound productive management practices, least-cost rations, Beef Quality Assurance (BQA), computerized record keeping, and value-based marketing, Nebraska's cattle feeders provide their customers and packers with cattle to meet industry and consumer demands. The Ag Promotion and Development Division (AP&D) of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture is dedicated to assisting individuals interested in Nebraska agriculture and Nebraska's cattle feeding operations. AP&D staff can provide information or arrange for visits with beef industry leaders. ...more

SALACOA VALLEY HOSTS TWO DAY SALE EVENT
Unseasonably warm temperatures and dry weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of 142 registered buyers from nine US States, Mexico and Australia who gathered at Salacoa Valley Farms, Fairmount, Ga.
INTEREST IN LEGEND LESPEDEZA CONTINUES TO GROW
Predictions swirling around for 2017 include very little improvement for beef prices and the possibility of some extended drought conditions in some regions. That means that every serious manager facing this possible scenario had better be looking for ways to manage on both sides of the ledger.
BLACK INK -- THE PAYOFF FROM PROGRESS
There's always something more to do. After the holidays, things will slow down. Nah, maybe after calving, branding and breeding. But then, summer comes and there's all that hay to make when the sun is shining, fences to build and cedars to eliminate (or insert your own region-specific fair-weather task).
IT'S THE PITTS -- GYPSIES, TRAMPS AND BEEVES
I get my news from paperview. I read the newspaper. I don't watch much television and have found that your average security camera monitor is more entertaining than TV.
HUNTIN DAYLIGHT -- PAST TIME FOR A UNIFIED INDUSTRY VOICE
Ignoring extremist animal rights groups in the hopes of dousing the flames of controversy might have seemed logical in the beginning. Limping along without having to commit more scarce resources to the fight might have seemed necessary. Now, these notions seem less quaint than downright destructive.
MANAGEMENT OF YEARLING BULLS IMPORTANT TO HERD
With the spring sale season on the horizon, it is time we dedicate a little discussion to bull management.
PRODUCERS SHOULD FOCUS ON IMPROVING PROTEIN NUTRITION
One of the most common topics discussed when feeding pasture and breeding cattle is protein. Producers are concerned with crude protein in their hays, pastures, supplements and so on.
FRIENDSHIP FARMS SALE AVERAGES $4,010 ON 83 LOTS
The Friendship Farms Fall Bull Sale was held October 28, 2016 in Canoochee, Ga.
GENETRUST AT CHIMNEY ROCK HELD NOVEMBER 4-5
The GENETRUST @ Chimney Rock is an annual highlight of the Brangus breed, producing more chart topping A.I. sires than any other sale in the breed and the deepest offering of registered females anywhere, and 2016 was no exception.
PROPER BULL SELECTION CAN INCREASE RETURNS
The past few years have seen a dramatic downturn in calf prices from historic highs to the lowest prices in four or five years. Unfortunately, some input prices are slow to come down while other inputs still remain high; thus causing a strain on budgets.
DROUGHT CAUSES SHORTAGE OF HORSE QUALITY HAY
Though we have received some beneficial rains the last few weeks the availability of hay, especially horse quality hay, is something that will continue to be problematic for several more months.
PASTURES REQUIRE REST AND RECOVERY FOLLOWING DROUGHT
The winter is typically a time that we count on for rainfall and cooler temperatures in the Southeast. By the time you read this article, significant rainfall may have fallen around the state already. However, this does not mean we are "out of the woods" on drought conditions.
PRODUCERS MUST MANAGE DRASTIC WEATHER SHIFTS
One of the joys of living in the south is the often mild winters we experience. However, as I write this article, we've currently just experienced one of the weather swings that Mississippi is famous for. A Friday of temperatures hovering in the upper 30's to low 40's to a Saturday of almost 80° to a Sunday of freezing rain and sleet.
RESEARCH TRIALS FOCUS ON WINTER PASTURE STOCKING
Profits in stocker production can be as green as winter pastures when conditions are right and producers apply correct stocking strategies, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research expert.
IT'S THE PITTS -- YOU CAN NEVER BE NEW AGAIN
Farmers and ranchers, I was thinking of you today. You hardly ever write any more. When I started writing this column 35 years ago I got lots of letters. Paul Harvey once sent me a box of 1,400 letters addressed to me. But not so much anymore.
