North Dakota Cattle

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.

TAKING A LOOK AT 2017 FOR CATTLE PRODUCERS
It's time to drag out the trusty crystal ball and take a look at what 2017 has in store for the beef cattle industry. For this to make sense we need to consider where we came from and how we got to where we are.
IT'S THE PITTS -- CATTLE TRAITING
Expected progeny differences (EPD's) have done wonders in improving the quality of our cattle. My only problem with EPD's is there aren't enough of them for traits that I'm most interested in.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- FEWER AND BIGGER
Whether the proverbial chicken or egg, another round of agricultural consolidation appears to be spurred along by suppliers dealing with narrow margins.
BLACK INK -- MAKING THE MOST OF IT
“Suppose we could only make 1 million cars. If the auto industry was limited for some reason, what would they do? Would they make small, cheap vehicles or big, premium, expensive cars?” An industry observer asked that question at a cattle feeders meeting this summer.
LATE WEANING HELPS AVOID EFFECTS OF HARSH WINTER
A growing number of stockmen are calving later in the year (April, May or June) rather than early, to be more in tune with nature. They have green grass at calving time and less need for harvested forage when the cow's nutritional needs are peaking during lactation.
NEW VETERINARY FEED DIRECTIVE TAKE EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2017
As of January 1, 2017, beef producers must comply with the new rule regarding use of antibiotics in feed. This rule is aimed at better management of certain antibiotics considered medically important to humans—putting them under more veterinary supervision. This is part of a larger movement to minimize development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

HEALTHY SOIL AIDS GRASS AND ANIMAL VIGOR
Dung beetles, earthworms and pollinators are the good guys when it comes to the health of soil and grassland resources.
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP NEW WHITE CLOVER
Researchers at The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation and University of Georgia (UGA) have developed a new white clover variety called Renovation to help agricultural producers improve and maintain healthy, productive pastures.
IT'S THE PITTS -- WISE BEYOND HIS YEARS
My shrewd buddy Everett came by for a visit today. I haven't seen him for awhile because he's been hauling stock, driving his John Deere and learning how to operate a backhoe.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- MOM'S CHRISTMAS MEMORIES
Christmas Eve was always celebrated at a little two-room country school called Bethel School House out in the middle of Greggs' pasture.
CALVING IS VERY IMPORTANT TIME IN PRODUCTION YEAR
For the cow-calf operation, the main goal is for each breeding female to produce a healthy calve once per year. That said, in the typical cow-calf operation, calving is, without a doubt one of the most important periods of the entire production year.
EPDS PROVIDE THE MOST ACCURATE SELECTION METHOD
Selecting beef cattle based on expected progeny difference (EPD) values provides the most accurate selection method currently available to beef producers for economically important traits.

WILL IONOPHORES BE AFFECTED BY REGULATION CHANGES?
An ionophore is a feed additive used in beef cattle rations to improve feed efficiency and animal gains.
