Fall Calving in North Dakota
By Brian Kreft
A fall calving herd was established at CGREC in the fall of 1992 to gather a data base to determine the economics of fall calving in North Dakota.
North Dakota cattle producers are faced with many decisions and must utilize their resources as efficiently and profitably as possible. These resources can be influenced greatly by the time of year that calving is scheduled. Feed quality and quantity as well as investments in facilities and equipment can be affected by the selected calving season.
