Armstrong Research and Demonstration Farm
A steer grazing demonstration was conducted in 2000 at the CRP Research and Demonstration Project farm near Corning, Iowa. The steers were born on farms in southwest Iowa in the spring of 1999 and were purchased between February 24 and March 1, 2000, at sale barns near Corning. While still at the sale barns, the calves were vaccinated for IBR, PI3 , BVD and BRSV. The steers were backgrounded at a farm near the CRP project farm until the pastures were ready for grazing. When the steers were delivered to the CRP farm on April 24, they were weighed, individually identified with eartags, injected with Dectomax®, implanted with Revalor-G® and given pinkeye shots.
