One hundred years ago, researchers at what is now Colorado State University began investigating a disease affecting cattle on the state's high-mountain ranches. The disease, which caused significant death loss, p
When loads of stressed, high-risk calves arrive at the feedlot, it often makes economic sense to treat them all with antibiotics to prevent an almost-inevitable outbreak of bovine respiratory disease (BRD).
University of Missouri's David Patterson gives a detailed look at why we must understand the science behind fixed-time and split-time AI protocols for the overall health and performance of our future cow herds.
While the cattle industry continues to refine preventive measures, treatments and overall management, feedlot morbidity, mortality and costs associated with bovine respiratory disease (BRD) stubbornly refuse to improve.
To accelerate alfalfa research and cultivar development, scientists at the Noble Research Institute developed the Alfalfa Breeder’s Toolbox, a web-based portal to allow alfalfa breeders and researchers share data.
