Georgia has over 30,000 cattle producers with an average herd size of less than 50 head. Most Georgia farms are cow/calf operations with calves being sold at the local auction barns. The calves which usually weigh between 300 and 500 pounds often go to a forage based stockering program, where they gain another 300 to 400 pounds. Then the feeders which now weigh between 600 and 800 pounds will typically move into feedlots.

A 1,000-pound market steer yields approximately 525 pounds of beef. Of the carcass, 99 percent is either used as meat or recovered as by-products, both edible and inedible, from which are made a wide variety of goods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and clothing. Up to 75 percent of all beef consumed in the US comes from cattle fed in feedyards. Feedlots are increasingly becoming fewer and larger. The states of Texas, Nebraska and Kansas now finish 60 percent of the cattle fed in the United States. Most of Georgia's cattle end up in feedyards in these states.

Agriculture and related agribusiness employ 1 in 6 people in Georgia. The agriculture's direct impact to Georgia's gross product is $6 billion. If you add sales and service, processing and distribution, the total impact is $52 billion dollars.

Livestock Trailer rentals

Just curious:
What is special about the heifers that you would drive that far to purchase. When you drive out of State from Austin it ain't nothin close.



curved fences vs?
by Ebenezer (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 19:39:58 GMT+5)
Regardless of what anyone says here or elsewhere, put your fence where you want it for the right reasons and in the manner you want to build it. Nobody knows your conditions and a few braces will take a little time but you will be glad that you did what you thought was right.



A tough story and a sign of things to come
by Aaron (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 19:37:28 GMT+5)
Just got an email that a local older guy is dispersing 100 pairs. That has to be between 1/3 and 1/2 of his cows. He got real big, real quick as well, so I don't have to think too hard on the reasoning for selling a few cows.

I know a lot of young guys here who are wallowing in debt. One guy I deal with approached a neighbor to buy his new CIH tractor, can't pay for it.



Who started from nothing?
by GRTiger85 (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 19:10:10 GMT+5)
I'm 29, and pretty much started from scratch in college. Grew up on cattle operations my dad managed. Started with 3 cows and leased land from my grandparents. Currently running about 45 Registered cows and about 30 commercial cows. Have about 500 acres worth leased. It's possible but you have to be willing to put in the work and make sacrifices to do it. Keep the landowners happy, and they will usually take care of you. Lease land is hard to find so dont do anything to screw it up.



TexasBred, what's your advice on this mineral?

When do the babys shed out?



Buy land or fund an IRA?
by Cross-7 (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 19:03:03 GMT+5)
Going to throw this out there
I'm paranoid and have no faith in the economy or our government
I'm looking for isolation.
I'm looking for the basics, food, water and place I can protect.
I think the monetary system is going to fail.
When the SHTF I want to insulate myself as best I can.



Long Term Investment

Thought I would post the most colored up first. Well, just happened to have them on camera already.










Bathroom dilemma for the wife or daughter.
by JMJ Farms (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 18:28:38 GMT+5)
For me it ain't about being angry or scared. It's about something called principle. Too many folks don't even know what principles are anymore.

I was raised in the 50's too. But as I said it was all in the imagination of some writer, Hollyweird or otherwise. Growing up I knew a lot of very good men who wore black hats.



Teets too big to nurse?
by BK9954 (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 17:41:29 GMT+5)
The bull calf is nursing fine. He was a little shy and sneaky. My wife kept telling me he couldnt nurse on the teets but he is doing great. He is on the small side but I did AI the lowest birthweight angus bull I could find



Is he a dwarf?
by Williamsv (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 17:39:32 GMT+5)
I cannot see a bit of Angus in him either. He does look like a Highland.

School Bathroom ?
by melking (Posted Wed, 25 May 2016 17:16:21 GMT+5)
I am ashamed to say that this occurred pretty close to me. There is a lot of outrage, and of course misguided. At the school rather than the parents.

PRODUCERS SHOULD EVALUATE VALUE OF CREEP FEEDING
n the last issue we started a discussion concerning creep feeding and an ongoing evaluation of the value of this practice in cow-calf production. The main question the producer has to ask is “if I decide to creep feed my calves will this result in higher weaning weights and will it be profitable?”
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- WINDSHIELD ECONOMICS
Hooter was riding shotgun with Peetie Womack on the way back home from a feedlot where Peetie was checking on some of his cattle.
GENETRUST AT SUHN CATTLE COMPANY BULLS AVERAGE $5,863

BLACK INK -- BEYOND THE BURNING HAIR
Our electric branding iron hangs high on a barn wall, bought on impulse 35 years ago but not used in 30. We freeze brand our replacement heifers though.
IT'S THE PITTS -- MOTHER NATURE, FATHER TIME
Women are nature, men are time. Women are beautiful like a Maui sunset or a forest of pine wearing a fresh blanket of snow, while men are as timeless as Shakespeare, Michelangelo and Da Vinci.
GRASS-FED BEEF CONFERENCE TO BE HELD MAY 26-27, 2016
With consumer interest heightening about where their food comes from, grass-fed beef producers will have the opportunity to learn more about marketing opportunities and production trends during a May 26-27 conference in College Station.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT - DECLINING PRICES MAGNIFY COST FOCUS
“Expenses won't come down as fast as commodity prices,” says Stan Bevers, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service economist. “Cow-calf expenses won't come down as fast as cow-calf prices. 2016 will have lower calf prices but not to the extent it will affect these higher expenses. During 2017, expenses still will not be coming down, where calf prices will be in their second year of decline. That's what concerns me.”
CONSIDER PROS AND CONS BEFORE CREEP FEEDING
Creep feeding of calves while still on the cow has been a management tool used for years by the cow-calf producer. The value and profitability of this practice has been long debated as well. So when producers ask if it is something worth considering, I give them the stock nutritionist's answer: “well, it depends.”
LITTLE W CHAROLAIS HOLDS PRODUCTION SALE
Little W Charolais held their 6th annual production sale on March 26, 2016 at the farm in Lebanon, Tenn.
EGYPTIAN VET STUDIES AT MISSISSIPPI STATE
New research techniques learned at Mississippi State University through a scholar exchange program will help a cattle veterinarian from Egypt as she pursues a doctoral education in food safety.
DEER ANTLERS MAY HOLD HEALTH SECRETS
Each spring the woods are littered with antlers as deer shed their old racks to make way for new sets, and these “sheds” may reveal hidden health problems in the bucks that drop them.
CLEMSON EXTENSION OFFERS CATTLEMEN'S BOOT CAMP
Gaven and April Hammett want to expand their cattle operation and are looking to Clemson University for the information they need.
EARLY SPRING CAN BE A CHALLENGING NUTRITIONAL TIME FOR SPRING CALVING
Late winter and early spring is the most challenging time of the year for the nutrition of the spring-calving beef cows.
SALACOA VALLEY FARM'S SALE HELD MARCH 24TH
Balmy spring weather and multidimensional cattle were on hand for the Salacoa Valley Farm Customer Appreciation Sale.
IT'S THE PITTS -- THE TRIPLICATE THEORY
Have you ever noticed how bad luck always travels in threes? I'm warning you, if the cows get out on the road and then the water well goes dry I'd stay in the house, pull your shades and not answer the phone if I were you. Be very, very careful.
