Weaning Fall-born Calves
Angus Beef Bulletin
Don’t forget to plan for water needs of both cows and calves. Many cow-calf operations with fall-born calves will wean the calves in mid- to late June. Weaning during very hot summer weather is stressful enough to the calves. Therefore any management strategy that can reduce stress to the calves should be utilized. Fenceline weaning is one such strategy.
