What's the Best Spring Deworming Decision for your Cow-Calf Herd?Wed, 12 May 2010 6:07:38 CDT
It's research from the 1990s- but is still very relevant to cattle producers. Oklahoma State University Extension Beef Cattle Specialist Dr. Glenn Selk says that OSU looked at the spring deworming decision- and tried three strategies- worming just the mama cows, worming just their calves or worming both the cows and their calves.
Which strategy yielded the most extra pounds per calf? And which strategy gives you the most bang per deworming buck?
We hear from Dr. Selk on this research in a recent segment from the OSU Ag Communications program SUNUP. It's the focus of our midweek beef Buzz.
The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the state on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
