Calving Season

Feb 17, 2020

It’s calving season! Get your calves off to the best start by understanding the complex digestive system a calf develops. Newborn calves are considered pre-ruminants. When calves are born they have all four compartments within the stomach but do not utilize the rumen to the full extent. The four parts of the stomach include: the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum. When a calf is born the largest compartment is the abomasum at 70% of the digestive tract. This is contrary to a cow where the rumen is the largest compartment (70%) in the digestive system. When a calf is born the immature digestive system acts similarly to that of a monogastric animal and relies on milk as a source of carbohydrates and proteins.

Lock In Profits

Feb 07, 2020

We all do it. We get in the habit of watching the commodity markets rally then we hurry up and sell after we have left a bunch on the table in the quick reversal of fortune. Grain marketing is one of the most important parts of the farm operation but it is also the last part the producer thinks about. There are many ways to lock in profitable grain margins and yet time and time again we watch it slip through our hands...

Don't Forget the Phosphorus!

Feb 06, 2020

It is that time of the year to be putting fertilizer on brome. When turning in maps or talking with your agronomist, remember to put phosphorus fertilizer with your nitrogen. Brome is a cool season grass that will be greening up and putting on tons as soon as the weather starts to get warmer in March. Brome removes around 30 pounds of nitrogen and 12 pounds of phosphorus per ton of hay according to K-State. A typical fertilized brome field will yield around 2.5 to 3 tons per acre. The best time to put phosphorus on brome is in the fall but with harvest and wheat planting, it is hard to find time to fertilize brome. Winter and early spring phosphorus applications work too and will help the brome the next fall to tiller and overwinter.
