Many of the problems we see with beef cattle health and productivity from winter weather are preventable with some advanced planning. The lower critical temperature is the environmental temperature at which cattle start burning calories to maintain a normal body temperature. While Louisiana winters are relatively mild, they are usually very wet.
Winter-feeding of the beef cows represents the greatest expense in most beef cow-calf enterprises. Currently high feed prices, even for hay, should cause farmers to evaluate their winter-feeding strategies to identify ways to reduce feed costs through minimizing feed waste. In the upper Midwest a mature cow will eat approximately 3 tons of hay. annual winter pastures. The relative abundance of certain byproducts in different regions of the Southeast also plays a role in planning winter feeding strategies. The availability of byproducts from the citrus and sugarcane industry in the south can provide unique pricing opportunities for inclusion in beef cattle .
Beef Cattle Production and Management Practices and Implications for Educators health, and marketing. This paper addresses each of these managerial areas following a limited review of relevant literature. Note that many other management practices in the survey cows’ nutritional needs with harvested forage and feed for days or more. Beef cow production cycle. For nutritional and most management purposes, the annual production cycle for the beef cow can be divided into 4 phases: Pre-calving, Postpartum, Lactating and Pregnant, and Gestation. Each one of these phases is physiologically unique and each has its own set of nutritional requirements (Figure 1).

Cattle require a fresh water source for optimal health and performance. The water content of feedstuffs being consumed and environmental factors play a role in animal water needs. When air temperatures are less than 29 F, cattle require 2 to 3 pounds of water per pound of dry matter intake.

Feeding and Nutritional Management of Beef Cattle June 27th, Breeding beef cattle for unfavorable environments. Beef cattle production, whether on range, improved pasture, or in the feedlot, is most economic when feedstuffs are used effectively. Young growing grass or other high-quality pasture crops usually supply ample nutrients, such that mature and young growing cattle can consume sufficient good-quality mixed pasture (grasses and legumes) for normal growth and maintenance.
Fall and Winter Health Problems in Cow-Calf Herds When cattle are stressed, they become thin and their immune systems are suppressed. Germs that are dormant in the tissues and organs of the cattle can break out of dormancy, multiply and cause outbreaks of diseases and disorders, such as: ♦ Clostridiosis (clostridial blackleg group), which.

Expensive grasslands demand efficient utilization of forages. Supplemental feeding and complete feeding programs must be designed to meet the nutrient needs of beef cattle.
Understanding beef cattle nutrient requirements is a critical step in developing a nutritional management strategy for the herd.
Nutritional decision making is a key factor determining beef cattle production and profitability. Adequate nutrition is required for growth, maintenance, lactation, and reproduction.

An understanding of the principles underlying the nutritional management of breeding females is necessary, including a working knowledge of the different energy measuring systems commonly used and their applications for different classes of animals, activities, and feedstuffs.
What other considerations should ranchers take into account. Caldwell: You may have seen cattle eating snow during the winter. It’s tempting to think they get enough water through that and you don’t have to get out and bust up water troughs, but the snow does not provide enough water.

Calves will need a higher level of nutrition to allow for their growth, while mature dry cows will need a relatively low level of nutrition. All of these considerations will weigh on determining what direction to go with feeding cattle in the winter. Here are a few tips from Erika Lundy, Iowa State Extension beef specialist, to think of for winter feeding: 1.
