Information updated from the Beef Meeting - Nov. 2015

When winter temperatures drop, you need to increase feeding rates for animals in order to provide the extra energy needed to maintain their body heat.    

RULE OF THUMB:  When the average temperature drops below 40° for an extended period of time, you should increase your feed by 10%.  If the temperature drops near zero, you should increase by 20%.   Also take into account the wind chill factor.   Feeding more hay will not necessarily give the extra needed energy.  It takes grain to generate heat.  Increasing fat levels will also provide extra calories to the winter diet. This applies to poultry and to your pets as well.  Make sure animals have adequate open water and dry bedding.  

If you have feeding or management questions, please give us a call or email.   

February and March is when we see cattle rubbing and losing hair due to a lice infestation. 

This mild winter will make conditions even worse.

PERMETHRIN 1% Synergized is a ‘pour on’ control to treat lice on beef,
lactating and non lactating dairy cattle. 

One gallon treats 50 head of cattle.
