beef systems - reproduction and nutrition strategies

Synchronization protocols, pregnancy detection technology and sound nutrition strategies are key management tools for producers to increase the performance of beef cows.

On the nutrition front, maintaining flexibility to adjust rations – and competitively pricing protein and energy sources – may create opportunities to lower costs without sacrificing performance.

Small grains, silage and other alternatives may be available and formulate well in most rations.
