North Dakota Cattle

at NDcattle.com

The North Dakota Stockmen�s Association was organized by a group of cattle producers more than 70 years ago. The first meeting, held in 1929 in Watford City, established a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of cattle rustlers. Then, as now, cattle protection through brand inspection was their top priority. In fact, the $1,000 reward still stands today. The objective of today�s association is to contribute to the profitable growth of the state�s cattle industry. The association also enforces the livestock laws of North Dakota. Further purposes are to make continuous investigations and studies of the industry and to make recommendations to public officers and other institutions necessary in promoting the general welfare of the more than 2 million head of cattle in North Dakota, the second largest source of new wealth in the state. The beef cattle industry contributes about $600 million annually to the state�s annual agricultural income. As the state�s spokesperson for the beef cattle industry, the association is a voice heard through the halls of the State Capitol to the state�s farms and ranches and all the way to Washington, D.C. The NDSA can�t put up your hay or brand your calves - those are chores within your own fences. But it can and does work 365 days a year outside your fences where you can�t do it alone.

PRECONDITIONING VITAL PART OF CALF HEALTH PROGRAM
If you have sold a calf recently, I don't have to tell you that calf prices have dropped significantly from 2015. Last year, you could sell about anything and get good money for it; but now, you have to have a good calf to bring the best price. In the right market, preconditioned calves still bring the most money, and there is a good return on healthy calves. Besides a health premium, farmers also sell a heavier calf.
