Description

Attractive feeder calf prices in recent years have sparked a renewed interest in cow-calf production from beef enthusiasts wanting to either enter the business or expand their current operation. An aging population of farmers with pasture acres offers a unique opportunity for the development of cow-share agreements between the two parties. These are important documents that may be crucial to expanding the nation’s cowherd in the near term and add to the long term sustainability of the beef industry.
