Through the years, certain foods fall in and out of public awareness and favor. This certainly has been true of fats, such as those found in margarine and butter. For example, for a time, margarine was recommended instead of butter for health reasons; more recently, margarine has received bad press because it contains trans fat. These conflicting messages in the media can create confusion. For more information check out FN1685.
Are you Backgrounding Your Calves
to take advantage your feed resources and the strong calf market?
On October 17th, NDSU specialists presented a program to help producers who are backgrounding their calves this fall. These specialists that presented archived the presentations covered that night and the videos provide more information to help you with some of the decisions that go along with feeding calves. These clips highlight feeding corn silage, the cost of gain, and updates to treating your sick calves.
