David Anderson Asks- Who is Gonna Rebuild Those Mama Cow Herds?

David Anderson Asks- Who is Gonna Rebuild Those Mama Cow Herds?


David Anderson of Texas AgriLife believes the day is coming when the question of who will step up and start holding back heifers- adding to the US Beef Cow Herd- will become relevant. It's not a matter of If but rather of When.


Anderson says everyone understands that while the drought has drastically cut into the beef cow herd numbers in both Oklahoma and Texas- at some point the drought will end- grass will be growing again- and at point- the question becomes- who will rebuild the Mama Cow herds in these two states that have traditionally been the two largest beef cow states in the US?


He says some of the older producers who have gotten out because of the drought will likely not be back- but the market will provide an incentive for cattle producers who want to step up and add to their beef cow herds.


Dr. Anderson is a Beef Buzz guest- offering some interesting insights into what's ahead as we consider the rebuilding of the southern plains beef cow herds.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
