Cull cows can represent a significant component of a cow-calf operation’s annual income. Past research suggests that cull cow revenue as a percentage of annual income ranges from 15% to 30%. Alongside the culling decision is a marketing decision – the decision to market cull cows at culling time or retain them on the farm for marketing at a later date. In this webinar, Dr. Kellie Raper examined current and past cull cow management and marketing research with practical application to maximizing the value of cull cows for individual cow-calf operations.

In this webinar, Dr. Shannon Ferrell covered the answers to those questions and talked about the points neighbors should address in their fencing agreements.
