Processing calves

Hello Everyone this is Connor Biehler a beef systems educator with Nebraska extension. Producers anticipate calving season by working relentlessly to make sure their herd is properly managed, healthy, fed, and vaccinated. Once a cow has calved ideally there is a healthy calf to tend to, and a new set of protocols are administered for raising that calf. Due to the broad scope of the U.S. beef industry, producers’ strategies after weaning may vary. But before that time comes, specific procedures need to be conducted to properly manage the calf through weaning and prepare them for the next stage of production.

The Gage County Extension Office is open, as of June 15!
We would like all of you to know that we take the safety of our community and our staff very seriously. As we move through the re-opening of our office, we are taking precautionary steps to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
