Founded in 1867, Colorado Cattlemen's Association is the nation's oldest state cattlemen's association. Colorado Cattlemen's Association represents its more than 12,000 members by working closely with state and national legislators, government agencies, media and consumers to promote the interests of Colorado's cattle industry.

By working together Colorado Cattlemen's Association's members accomplish goals that no single cattle producer could achieve.

NEBRASKA STUDY SHOWS NO ILL EFFECTS FROM CROP RESIDUE GRAZING
It makes sense that a 1,200 pound Angus cow would place quite a lot of pressure on the ground on which it walks. But a new study shows that even these heavy beasts can't do much to compact common soils—if they're grazed responsibly.
IT'S THE PITTS -- ASK THE STYLEMASTER
It's been awhile (30 years) since I, the god of good taste, answered your many questions regarding what's in style. It's quite natural that you'd seek guidance from such a fashion forward expert as myself.
PASTURE RECOVERY AFTER DROUGHT CAN BE DIFFICULT
Maintaining a healthy pasture can be challenging, even in years with average rainfall. Drought affected the southeastern US from July to December of 2016. Drought conditions can impact pasture productivity further into next season.
PRIORITIZATION IS IMPORTANT TO NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT
Most cattle producers have a nutrition program of one type or another. Some are very well structured, perhaps even having been designed working with a nutritionist. Others are less sophisticated and are the results of getting recommendations at the local feed store or coffee shop. Some are very simple and include grazing on pasture, feeding some hay in winter and throwing out some range cubes when you want to call the cows up to gather calves (this is the program I grew up with).
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- HOW THEY'RE RAISED
“It was what I would call a life-affirming experience, maybe even a life-altering one,” Peetie Womack said with a solemnity seldom heard. He was addressing the monthly meeting of the Rio Rojo Cattlemen's Association (RRCA), talking about a brief journey to Kansas where recent wildfires had done some of the broadest and worst damage.
DEBTER RECOGNIZED BY ALABAMA BCIA
The Alabama Beef Cattle Improvement Association (BCIA) recently awarded the 2016 Richard Deese Award to Glynn Debter of Debter Hereford Farm in Horton, at the 2017 Alabama BCIA Annual Meeting held in Jemison on March 11.
SALACOA VALLEY BRANGUS SALE HELD MARCH 25
Eighty-nine registered buyers from 11 states and Australia participated in the recent Salacoa Valley Customer Appreciation Sale in at Salacoa Valley Farms in Fairmont, Ga.
IT'S THE PITTS -- MY EMPTY-BUCKET LIST
Other than becoming the first billion dollar lotto winner, my bucket-list is empty. I've already jumped in a pool fully clothed, made soap, worked a potter's wheel and been lost in the smoke at 6,000 feet over Donner Pass in a small airplane.
NUTRITIONAL TOOLS ENHANCE HERD PERFORMANCE
In more recent history, cattle producers are beginning to focus more on production efficiency. “What is the most economical way I can produce a calf or a pound of gain on the bulls and heifers I sell?” With every production parameter there is an efficiency measurement that comes with it. Cattle producers are in a constant search for ways to save money or improve productivity and profits. Producers who are in the business to be profitable and to maximize profits should review all avenues that can improve efficiency and help the productivity and performance of their herds. Since the largest single input for most herds is nutrition this article will focus on this aspect.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- TRADING UP IN HERD REVENUE
Although still discounted relative to fed cattle, resurgent calf and feeder cattle prices continued to lift hopes through March.
CONSIDER USING BALEAGE TO CONSERVE FORAGE
In many county Cattlemen's meetings and trainings held of late, I have strongly encouraged producers to consider taking full advantage of spring rains and growing conditions. Included in that discussion is usually an encouragement to use baleage to harvest and store any excess winter forage production. In this article, we will dive a little deeper into the management and use of baleage.
CLOVER SPECIES CAN COMPLEMENT FORAGE PRODUCTION
Most of the forage production in Mississippi targeting livestock is dominated by warm-season perennial grasses (bermudagrass and bahiagrass) and cool-season annual grasses (annual ryegrass and small grains). However, there is a number of clover species that can complement forage production to improve yields, reduce nitrogen inputs, improve forage quality, and extend the grazing season.
BRAHMAN FIELD DAY HELD AT LANGDALE FARMS
Education, fellowship and fun were on the program for the Brahman Field Day held at Langdale Farms in Avast, Georgia January 19-20. Langdale Farms hosted and sponsored the event; additional sponsors included the Wire Grass Cattleman Association and the Florida Brahman Association (FBA).
SIRE SELECTION IS FOUNDATION FOR PROFITABLE HERD
Bull selection is the foundation for building a profitable beef herd. Approximately 88 percent of the genetic makeup of a herd after 10 years of breeding will have come from the bulls used.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- CIRCULAR CHATS
Hooter hated driving anywhere with lots of traffic, which was about anywhere on I-45, from about Sherman to south of Houston; anywhere on I-35 from South of San Antonio to Oklahoma City; anywhere on I-20 from…you get the notion.
