Optimizing the Size of Your Cows to Maximize Profits
Oklahoma Farm Report
Ted McCollum of Texas AgriLife is one of the top beef cattle specialists in the region. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with McCollum during a recent presentation he gave on the subject of figuring out the right size of cows to have for your beef cow herd. He says over the decades we have seen cattle bred to fit the full range of the size spectrum. Currently though, more moderately built cows seem to be the norm, but McCollum suggests that each individual ranch should have its own optimized standard.
