Beef Cattle Production. An Instructional Unit for Teachers of Adult Vocational Education in Agriculture.
Metzger, Bruce; Iverson, Maynard J.
The unit on beef cattle production is designed primarily for the adult farmer program in Kentucky as an aid to making the beef enterprise more profitable. It is aimed primarily at the commercial producer. The lessons center on some of the more important economic points in beef cattle production. Ten lessons comprise the unit, which can be adapted for local needs and situations: (1) selection and breeding for increased herd production, (2) controlling costs, (3) increasing birth rate, (4) raising calves to weaning, (5) feeding, (6) producing replacement heifers, (7) maintaining health of herd, (8) managing the stocker program, (9) equipment needs, and (10) comprehensive management planning. Several suggestions for supplementary enrichment activities are listed for each lesson. Several forms and a course evaluation instrument are appended. (VA)
