Purebred Hereford steers and compared with 3 generations of crossbreds. The breeding of the 3 generations was as follows: first generation, Shorthorn bulls X Hereford cows; second generation, Aberdeen-Angus bulls X first generation cows; third generation, Hereford bulls x second generation cows.

Purebred and crossbred steers received a concentrate ration consisting of maize, dried Cited by: 5. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Knapp, Bradford, Jr., Crossbred beef cattle for the northern Great Plains.

Spurlock are Extension Animal Husbandmen, Davis. 2 CROSSBREEDING OF BEEF CATTLE INTRODUCTION Crossbreeding — the mating of different strains, breeds, or species — has been prac- r ticed for long periods of time in many parts of the world.

The American cattle commonly reared were called "native" or "com­ mon" cattle.6 Cattlemen of the Great Plains called Texas cattle "raw­ hides," and some of the "states" cattle moving to the plains area were re­ ferred to as "pilgrims." Bulls of quality that had trouble (oragihg for.

Our objectives were to determine effects of early weaning at the start of breeding on cow body weight, body condition score, and reproductive performance with or without estrous synchronization and AI in two herds in the Northern Great Plains, USA.

In Exp. 1 and 2, crossbred cows were stratified within cow age by postpartum interval, and calf Cited by: The Northern Great Plains (NGP) is the ideal spot for cattle ranching if you manage the land and the cattle to meet the special challenges there, says Pat Currie.

Land-wise, the former USDA researcher says that means managing the grass resource to prevent grazing too early and too heavy in the spring, as well as managing for drought and winter. One payloader was reported for every to 17, animals fed in the Northern Plains and to 3, animals fed in the Midwest.

Skid-steer loaders (about 60 kW) were used to feed an average of 6, cattle per loader in the Northern Plains and 2, cattle in the Midwest. A life‐cycle assessment (LCA) model was developed to estimate the environmental impacts associated with four different U.S. Northern Great Plains (NPG) beef production systems.

The LCA model followed a “cradle‐to‐gate” approach and incorporated all major unit. In the Great Plains it is the primary activity, not an adjunct to farming, and it is conducted on horseback (and, more recently, out of a pickup truck).

Nearly 50 percent of beef cattle in the United States are raised in the Great Plains, and 33 percent of Great Plains ranches have 1, or more cattle. For example, you could combine the heat tolerance of a tropical breed, like Zebu Cattle with the smaller frame size, lighter (and younger) finishing weight, and cold adaptability of one of the British beef cattle breeds.

Many cattle breeders used cross-breeding to combine desirable genetics from a range of breeds to create new brees. Economics of early weaning in northern great plains beef cattle production system John Travis Mulliniks, Richard C. Waterman, Thomas W. Geary DOI:. The largest cost for beef cattle operations throughout the Northern Great Plains (NGP) is winter feeding expenses.

These expenses account for approximately 60% of all cow-calf production costs on an average ranch (Taylor and Field, ). Winter feeding expenses are high. production of growing cattle during summer on Northern Great Plains rangeland.

He writes, “By Texas cattle had got as far North as Miles City, Montana.”2 Miles City was a thriving metropolis centered around ranching along the Yellowstone River in the Great Plains region of Montana.

This report summarizes information on the mineral requirements for beef cows grazing native rangeland of the mixed grass prairie in the Northern Great Plains. Beef Cow Macromineral Requirements The macrominerals required by beef cattle are calcium (Ca), phosphorus (P), magnesium (Mg), potassium (K), sodium (Na), chlorine (Cl), and sulfur (S).

Department of. Crossbreeding beef cattle offers two primary advan-tages relative to the use of only one breed: 1) cross-bred animals exhibit heterosis (hybrid vigor), and 2) crossbred animals combine the strengths of the various breeds used to form the cross. The goal of a well-de. The Great Depression, which lasted from through in Wyoming agriculture—twice as long as in the rest of the nation—put profound hardship on cattlemen.

After World War II, the cattle business regained strength, but by then the growing mineral industry encroached on Wyoming’s image as a cattle state. Spring-born, crossbred heifers were stratified to 2 treatments at weaning: (1) fence line weaning on native range (NR) (N=, and 99 inand respectively) or (2) weaning in a.

The importance of Great Plains cattle to the beef industry in the USA is reflected in data quoted by Holechek, Pieper and Herbel () indicating that 50 percent of all USA beef cattle are found in the northern and southern Great Plains.

The first cattle shipments in the U.S. were made by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in the s. The railroads rapidly pushed settlement west across the continent, and by the mids, trains were hauling cattle from the Great Plains to the East to provide beef to the masses.

Tacre ranch in Northern California is known for its sustainable practices. The ranch runs 3,–4, animals on various ranch locations during the year, with a harvest average of about 1, animals each year. The low cattle volume means meticulous attention is paid to the fine art of harvest, dry-aging, and beef processing.

Pure-bred vs Crossbred vs Mixed Breed Cattle: Which is the best fit for your farm?. 1 2. The alternative to the purebred or crossbred cattle herd is to manage a mixed cattle breeding program.

In this scenario you simply add whatever genetics to your herd as you see fit and pick the best offspring to use as replacement heifers. Phosphorus supplementation is recommended for grazing cattle in the Northern Great Plains, but documented benefits are lack- ing.

Thus, the objectives of this research were to determine the effect of P supplementation on the performance of range cows and to compare diet, serum, and fecal P.

The cattle production data they used was taken from records kept from to on both Herefords and Red Angus crossbred cattle. The crosses generally outweighed the Herefords and on average produced more beef every year, so the breed groups were studied separately.

the research team looked at data collected at the Northern Great Plains. Low-stress Cattle Working Facilities. The livestock industry is working hard to minimize stress to animals during all stages of production.

The recent renovation of the livestock-working facility at North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) may provide ideas to producers developing their own working facilities. Bison are large, even-toed ungulates in the genus Bison within the subfamily Bovinae.

Two extant and six extinct species are recognised. Of the six extinct species, five became extinct in the Quaternary extinction event. Bison palaeosinensis evolved in the Early Pleistocene in South Asia, and was the evolutionary ancestor of B.

In Experiment 1, crossbred yearling steers (N = 80 per year, mean initial live-weight = kg) were allotted to 1 of 2 treatments replicated in 3 pastures in each of 3 years.

Treatments were summer-long grazing with or without protein supplementation in late summer. Research established that 1) perennial grass production in much of the Northern Great Plains is tied closely to spring time precipitation and loosely tied to fall precipitation, and as such 2) about 90% of perennial grass production is normally completed by July 1.

A drylot served as the control.OMAHA (DTN) — Bitterly cold conditions and some rain and snow during the next six days will stall harvest and cause much stress to livestock in the Great Plains region.

Overnight temperatures during the weekend into the beginning of next week could fall into the single digits Fahrenheit in northern areas of the Plains.
