That's according to Chad Zehnder, cattle consultant for Purina Animal Nutrition.
He says that managed pastures can typically support the cow-calf herd from summer and into fall unless environmental conditions cause problems. "In a normal year, we hope to manage our pastures so we have ample forage for the cows," Zehnder says. "If forage is getting low in the pasture, make a switch before the problem is out of hand and the pasture is burnt up," Zehnder advises, explaining that a pasture break will allow it to regrow after periods of overgrazing or dry weather. Pasture substitution, or complementing the pasture with stored forage, is an option to ensure the herd receives the nutrients required when pasture quality becomes low. During periods of pasture stress, stored forages can be fed to the herd. Zehnder says that substitution was an option used by cattle producers during the 2012 drought, but that it is not necessary until winter in most years. "Substitution may be necessary in dry areas in the summer, but, most years, pasture supplementation during the summer and fall is ideal," he says, encouraging producers to work with a cattle nutritionist to create a pasture management and supplementation program.

"We need to prepare bulls to be athletes for the duration of breeding season," says Chad Zehnder, cattle nutritionist with Purina Animal Nutrition.

"Calving and rebreeding ideally occur within a relatively short, but very critical, 85-day window," says Chad Zehnder, Ph.D. and cattle consultant with Purina Animal Nutrition.
Cows bred early in the breeding season will result in calves born early in calving season," says Zehnder. Chad Zehnder, Ph.D. and cattle consultant with Purina Animal Nutrition. "We tend to think about the importance of minerals either right at calving or before breeding, but we need to make sure we're providing an adequate mineral program year-round," says Zehnder. "Make sure you have a vaccination program in place for both cows and calves," says Zehnder. "It's easy to get frustrated when there's a bump in the road, but it's important to take an objective approach when a challenge arises," Zehnder says. Every management decision we make throughout the year should focus on a cow delivering a live, healthy calf and being bred back in that timeframe," says Zehnder.

"We need to prepare bulls to be athletes for the duration of breeding season," says Chad Zehnder, Ph.D. and cattle nutritionist with Purina Animal Nutrition.
So, for a bull to go from a BCS 5 to a BCS 6, it would require gaining 100 pounds," says Zehnder. "To achieve that score increase takes time and monitoring." Start monitoring bulls four to five months before breeding season. Early monitoring allows for gradual changes to be made over time, versus trying to make drastic weight changes quickly. "Allowing a bull to gain 1 pound per day over 100 days, as opposed to pushing him to gain 3 pounds per day over 30 days, will be much more conducive to the longevity and performance of the bull," says Zehnder. "Yearling bulls and bulls up to 2 or 3 years of age are still growing and need a diet that meets those requirements," says Zehnder. At that point, younger bulls that are still growing will need more than a maintenance diet to regain condition and allow for growth," says Zehnder. Purchasing bulls is a significant initial investment, but trying to cut corners during bull development won't do your herd any favors. "To maximize your investment and use a bull to his full potential, continue developing him with a high-quality nutrition and animal health program," says Zehnder. "Think of bull development as a marathon rather than a sprint.
