BeefTalk: Flexible Planning Starts With Practical Cow Sort Lists
Kris Ringwall, Beef Specialist, NDSU Extension Service
Cowherd planning requires sorting, and it is best done when the cows come home. Don’t join the “I wish I had sorted the cows!” club. Things change. Weather turns colder or harsher than expected, draining feed resources. A mild winter may make everyone happy until drought forecasts show up. Families may change, the help may change or even the boss may change.
