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

Bull selection is the foundation for building a profitable beef herd. Approximately 88 percent of the genetic makeup of a herd after 10 years of breeding will have come from the bulls used.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- CIRCULAR CHATS
Hooter hated driving anywhere with lots of traffic, which was about anywhere on I-45, from about Sherman to south of Houston; anywhere on I-35 from South of San Antonio to Oklahoma City; anywhere on I-20 from…you get the notion.
ULTRASOUND PROVIDES PRODUCERS MEANS TO PREDICT CARCASS MERIT
Ultrasound found its first applications in livestock research in the 1950s. Since that time, the great strides that have been made in ultrasound research have benefited both human medicine and the livestock industry.
IT'S THE PITTS -- PUTTING THE HORSE OUT TO PASTURE
I read an article by an economist that suggested in order to make a greater profit you should get rid of your horses and buy an ATV.
RIGOROUS CULLING HELPS MAINTAIN EFFICIENT HERD
Which cows in your herd are making you money and who is losing you money? Every year, the cow-calf producer needs to critically evaluate each animal in the herd and decide if she is paying her upkeep
NOT TOO EARLY TO START "HEAT STRESS" DISCUSSION
A couple of weeks ago, here in Texas as well as numerous other locations across the US, temperatures bumped up into the 70's and even the 80's in some areas. This was in FEBRUARY! Granted, it has cooled back down but nonetheless it's already gotten warm in lots of locales across the country and will again very soon. That in mind, it's not too early to start the “heat stress” discussion and how this can affect animal performance. Heat stress is a major contributor to animal and production losses each year.
RESEARCH LAUNCHED TO IMPROVE BEEF SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental, social and economic sustainability is a long-held objective of the United States beef industry and the focus of a new, national research project.
BULL MANAGEMENT IS A KEY TO SUCCESSFUL BREEDING SEASONS
Bull management before and during breeding season can improve producers' chances for reproductive success, said a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service expert.
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 -- SHE SAID WHAT?
I remember learning early in life that humans should use all five of their senses, but darn it, mine don't work anymore.
INTERNAL PARASITE CONTROL SAVES PRODUCERS SIGNIFICANTLY EVERY YEAR
Since man has managed and produced cattle, control of internal parasites (worms, flukes) has been an issue. And while the industry seems to repeatedly discuss and address the problem, given the implications on animal health and performance, revisiting the subject is a necessity.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- WHERE THE COWS ARE
Whether you're looking to buy or sell calves, feeders, breeding cows or bulls, it's always worth pondering the relative volume of inventory and where it exists.
FORAGE AND RUMINANT LAB HELPS RESEARCHERS
The Forage and Ruminant Nutrition Lab at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Stephenville explores ways to improve ruminant diets and mitigate negative environmental impacts for researchers around the state, nation and globe, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research expert.
BEEF EXPORTS INCREASE U.S. CARCASS VALUES
Mouthwatering steaks, juicy burgers and delectable roasts. That's what consumers here in the U.S. love. But what about the underutilized parts of the beef animal? If we don't consume them here in the U.S., where do they go, and who uses them?
CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF STUDY SHOWS MARBLING STILL MATTERS
Just missed it. Just missing a flight, a deadline for a major rebate, or watching your child's winning shot at a ball game. The feeling is much the same.
