BeefTalk: Nice Weather for Calving is Priority One
Kris Ringwall, Beef Specialist, NDSU Extension Service
April 2, 3, 4 and 5 were the big calving dates during the mid-1990s calving seasons and remained that way well past the turn of the century. Currently, the numbers look more like April 5, 6, 7 and 8. These are calving dates for North Dakota and may be similar for other northern Plains states. Other regions would need to determine the dates for themselves.
