Winters in Kansas can be hard on your cattle. With the right preparations now, though, you can help your herd winter the challenging weather conditions ahead. The following tips can help you get 2015 off to a good start. Assess the Health of Your Pastures Now is the time to find and mark those areas where weeds are overtaking your pastures. Be sure to also make a note of any plants that are toxic. Test your soil so that you can make a treatment plan for the spring to ensure an improvement in grass stands. Knowing what your soil needs will help you spend your soil improvement budget more wisely. Take Inventory of Your Hay and Grain Ensure that your herd has access to high quality hay as a supplement to pastures that are likely not able to provide the nutrients they need to maintain their body scores. Testing your hay will also give you a baseline from which to work when it comes to supplementing with grain. Choosing grain that provides the necessary vitamins and minerals is a cost-effective way to protect your investment. Note Cattle Body Condition Be sure to note the body condition of each of your cattle now before the winter becomes any harsher. Thin cows need to be fed extra rations of grains and other supplements that provide more energy resources. Knowing the body score of your cows can alert you to those that need attention, saving you money and time in the long run. The best and cheapest way to make sure your cows weigh what they are supposed to is to be proactive when it comes to their body condition. Plan Management Tasks Now is a great time to mark those items on a calendar that you need to accomplish in 2015 to ensure that your farm produces the results you want. Planning out your year will keep you on track while providing the flexibility you need.
