Fenceline Low Stress Weaning
Dr. Glenn Selk, Professor-Animal Reproduction Specialist, Animal Science – Oklahoma State University
Spring calving herds across the Midwest and Southwest will soon be planning to wean the calves. Some producers may wean the calves from young or thin cows during September in order to regain some body condition before winter adds to the nutrient requirements. However, many herds will wean at the more traditional times of late October to early November.
