Cattle Herd Health, Worth & Effective Practices

We look at parasite and parasite control; discuss further in-depth with Dr. Mark Alley from Zoetis Animal Health.  We have bull sale reports coming in from North Dakota, Kansas, and Tennessee.  Cow/calf pairs are really demanding a premium so we bring you an update from South Dakota.  Plus listener questions answered about grazing feed-efficient cattle on fescue, how to be part of Allied Genetic Resource, market recaps, updates from the crew at LivestockMarket and so much more.  Join Jeff “Tigger” Erhardt and Rebecca Wanner aka BEC as they wrap it all together right here on the Ranch It Up Radio Show!
