The University of Georgia's Beef Team is comprised of faculty members that are directly involved in beef cattle education. The goal of this team is to enrich the availability of beef cattle information for producers and County Extension Agents. View Extension publications on beef and the UGA Beef Team blog feed below.
Drought does not develop overnight but progressively over time. Proper management during a drought period can make or break a producer's ability to stay in the cattle business. One main concern during a drought period is feeding and nutrition of the cow herd. Several problems could arise due to drought conditions. A good producer should stay alert for warning signs and avoid potentially damaging situations.
Beef cattle producers can use abandoned cotton and peanut crops as an economic means of nutrient supplementation for beef cattle. By using these abandoned crops, cattlemen can reduce feed costs and/or extend the grazing period and perhaps allow pastures to regenerate if adequate rainfall is received. This publication contains information about feeding drought-damaged cotton and peanut crops to beef cattle.
Cutting costs allows producers to survive during trying times and also teaches valuable lessons that may actually increase profits in future years. Cutting corners, on the other hand, may save some money in the short-run but ultimately will have very detrimental effects.
