There are a number of things cow-calf producers can do to prepare calves for their time in a feedyard, says Mark Sebranek, general manager at Irsik & Doll Feed Yard at Garden City, KS. A sound health and weaning program can add value to calves because it makes for healthier animals that are better able to withstand the challenges of a feedyard environment. And, he says, don't forget age and source verification, which is still adding value to cattle.

I am a farmer in Botswana-Africa who wants to be well versed with feeding system on different seasons and to have knowledge on medication for different diseases. I am always having a problem of deaths especially on lactating cattle. They die few days after breeding.
