Remodeling the Cow-Calf Industry – Chip Hines, Author/Retired Rancher – Yuma, CO discussed the current beef production model needs updating to bring the industry into the 21st century. The old model places undue emphasis on individual animal performance. The significant focus must now be placing production and profits on a “per acre” basis. The numbers of animals on a certain size land base is in direct proportion to the profitability of that base. More animals, eating the same amount of forage, is essential for profit…
