Range Management for Ranchers

PROMO 660 x 440 Logo - Colorado State University Extension

By Donald Schoderbek, CSU Extension Range Specialist

Let's talk about stocker cattle in Colorado.

Maybe you know them as a savvy buyer of 'odds and ends' at the sale barn.  Perhaps they are a cow-calf operator who holds back some steers for extra profit.  Or, they run a crackerjack starting yard.  I'm talking about the so-called 'elusive' stocker operator.   These operations exist because of a simple fact - young cattle are risky cattle, and feedlots prefer a safer investment.  Stocker operators get those rangy steers into feedlot shape!

All monetary donations to the Drovers/Farm Journal Foundation Million Dollar Wildfire Relief Challenge will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, up to $1 million.

By Jeramy McNeely, CSU Extension Agent

According to recent studies, arthritis affects approximately one-third of all adult farm and ranch operations and is considered one of the leading causes of disability by customers of the USDA AgrAbility Project.  It tends to affect most ag industry workers in their hands, knees, and hips mainly because these are the joints that take the most pressure.
