Record Keeping Is Key to Managing High-Risk Cattle
Dan Goehl, DVM
Receiving and managing high-risk, unweaned, nonvaccinated calves is a challenge that some producers use to their advantage. These "starter yards" take the discounts that this class of cattle receives at market and upgrade the calves to a better class of cattle. One of the most underutilized tools in these operations, unfortunately, is record keeping and data analysis.
