DROUGHT PREPARATION
Featuring: Dr. John McKinnon and Graeme Finn
In 2018, drought conditions negatively impacted beef production in Canada, and severely impacted in some locations globally. Projections suggest that the frequency and severity of drought will continue to increase in several areas that are already dry, such as the Southern Interior of British Columbia and the Prairie provinces.
Whether in the form of pasture, stored forage, or supplements, feed is the largest variable input cost in cow-calf operations. A big challenge is to feed the cow in a way that meets her current and future nutritional requirements for maintenance, lactation, and reproduction as cost effectively as possible. This challenge is obviously much greater during drought, when feed is scarce and expensive. This session will uncover ways to prepare your operation to lessen the impact of dry conditions on cattle and forages.
