    Grazing Systems: What types are there?

    By Robert Malmstrom

    Published Mar 9, 2020 

    A grazing system, when done correctly, can assist rangeland managers in achieving management objectives. They can both boost production as well as reduce their overhead costs. Selection of the proper type of system depends on understanding the unique combination of different aspects that go into range management. Things like the topography, soil type, the particular animal involved have to be balanced in order to get the best results... Continuousthis is where a set number of animals graze 1 pasture all year longuseful when you have animals you only want to eat the cream of the crop such as thoroughbreds and dairy cattleAccording to a study done by Penn State, forage utilization and consumption is reduced 30% to 40% in a continuous systemRotationalThis is where you have a pasture sectioned off into multiple paddocksthe time for rotation can be based on the length of time they are on that particular based...

    Oh deer! Deer damage and what farmers can do about it

    By John Moody

    Published May 21, 2018 

    It is that time of year again, at least in my parts. As things go from the tunnel to the field, all our friendly little four legged foes start to to make dinner plans… and breakfast plans. Some are making midnight snack plans as well. Raccoons, rabbits, and the worst of all in our area - deer... Sacrifice patches coupled with hunting permits could be a promising way to attract nuisance deer to an easy to dispatch location on a farm, similar to how hunters plant plots of crops for deer or use feeders to keep their interest in a particular spot strong...

    A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published Jun 4, 2018 

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States... Human application of herbicide is less preciseJohn, whose family operates a 400,000 acre sheep and cattle station in Northern South Australia, has seen an evolution of applied technology and farm employee labor...

    Is it the end of the line for the large feedlot in America?

    By North American Ag

    Published Jul 26 

    The Farm System Reform Act was introduced by Democrat Representative Ro Khanna in the House and Democratic Senator Cory Booker in the Senate. This legislation is designed to phase out large feedlots and give farmers the opportunity to transition to raising animals on pasture or to crop production. It’s supported by over 200 animal welfare, sustainable agriculture, environmental, and public health organizations. Vice President of Government Affairs at the National Cattleman’s Beef Association Ethan Lane has been vocal about his opposition to the Farm System Reform Act... ”Visit National Cattlemen’s Beef Association | North American Ag or to learn more...

    House Agriculture Hearing Echoes NCBA Push for More Hook Space | North American Ag

    By North American Ag

    Published Aug 2 

    After hearing testimony from agriculture economists, land-grant university faculty, and cattle industry stakeholders, many members of Congress echoed the National Cattlemen's Beef Association's (NCBA) longstanding call to expand processing capacity.  Chrissy Wozniak of North American Ag speaks with Tanner Beymer, Director of Government Affairs & Market Regulatory Policy for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. During the Hearing members also noted the need for greater transparency in cattle markets to create conditions that support both a reliable, affordable supply of U... beef and the continued financial viability of American cattle farmers and ranchers. The roadblocks that are depressing profits for our cattle producers and endangering the steady supply of affordable beef have really captured the attention of lawmakers, said NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane...

    Crisis at storage: Storage pests and diseases of corn & how to minimize them

    By SHARATH CHANDRAN U.S

    Updated Aug 9, 2020 

    Corn is an important cereal grain grown worldwide and is a staple food in many countries. Every year the corn industry faces millions of dollars’ worth of losses primarily due to faulty logistics and poor storage facilities. Here, the damages due to storage pests and diseases are amongst the main post-harvest losses seen in stored corn grains. Depending upon the conditions, the losses may vary from slight to extensive— inevitably impacting our food security... Weevils (both adults and larvae) are voracious feeders of the grains, causing extensive damage and spoiling of the corn kernels...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy... However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land... Since these changes were passed, Brazil has seen a distinct rise in new deforestation, as soy and cattle farmers have little respect for laws without consequences... The real irony of the Brazilian soy boom is it was initially looked at as an environmentally better option than cattle farming, where large pastures and hayfields were cleared out of the rainforest... Soybean farming is not the only reason the rainforests are in decline as large cattle farms were there well before the first soybean seed was planted...

    USDA Adopts Market Transparency Policies Backed by NCBA

    By North American Ag

    Published Aug 6 

    Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Marketing Service (USDA-AMS) announced today that it will begin publishing a National Daily Direct Formula Base Cattle report, which will provide greater information into the foundational prices used in cattle market formulas, grids, and contracts, and a National Weekly Cattle Net Price Distribution report, which will show the volume of cattle purchased at each different level of pricing within those formulas, grids, and contracts. NCBA has long urged USDA to adopt policies that increase transparency in the cattle markets and applauds this effort to provide producers greater insight into cattle transactions. “USDA’s announcement is a significant step toward increasing transparency in the cattle markets,” said NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane... NCBA remains committed to maximizing market transparency and looks forward to building on this momentum to shed more light on the fed cattle trade... The National Daily Direct Formula Base Cattle report will share national base price information of formula agreements...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018 

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... That land supports “just under 1,000 head of cattle, about 5,000 laying hens, 600 hogs per year, 20,000 broilers, and 2,000 turkeys...

    After remaining relatively unchanged since inception, several enhancements and improvements to the LRP insurance program for cattle have taken place over the last three years. With the recent changes, producer participation in the LRP insurance program in Nebraska has increased dramatically.
