BEEF Magazine recently restructured the Custom Grazing Bulletin Board – an idea suggested by BEEF Stocker Trends readers.

The look is similar, but entries to the free online pasture directory will include the date the entry is posted. In addition, postings will be removed from the bulletin board after three months unless they’re resubmitted. All current postings that have been displayed for more than three months will be discontinued October 11, so if they're still valid, please re-submit.

If you’d like your custom-grazing opportunity to be listed, please send the following information to Wes Ishmael at

  • Name
  • Town/State
  • Contact phone and/or e-mail
  • Number of acres/forage type
  • Historic average stocking rate—lbs./acre
  • Approximate turn-in and turn-out dates
  • Historic average gains (if available)
  • Years of experience running stocker cattle
