Beef Cattle News

Six new articles have been posted in this week’s Ohio BEEF Cattle letter: http://u.osu.edu/beef/

As recent as the past two days I’m still seeing lots of planters in fields in Fairfield and neighboring counties. If rain materializes across Ohio today as forecast, unplanted acres will likely remain in parts of the state tomorrow. This week we talk about one of the prevalent weeds were seeing in some of those fields, and also a forage production alternative for any insured acres that might not yet be planted.
