Yes, it’s that time of the year again – More so than ever. This year, we the producers need to consider many things. The Green Tag Preconditioning Sales are the best way to prove your cattle have been vaccinated and identified. Here is the kicker….Many feedlots and farmer feeders are going to be looking at 1 thing – vaccinations that have modified live virus shots, double pasteurella, and calves that have had 2 rounds of these shots. Out West, this is a part of life for the ranchers. Why is this so important? Calves that have 2 rounds of modified live shots can be co-mingled and have a better chance at a healthy start in their new home. Killed virus shots just don’t work that well, if at all. Diseases killed the small time hog farmer. Let’s not let this hurt the ones of us that are left in the cattle business. Modified vaccinations will give the confidence back to the feed yard and famer producers to put smaller bunches of cattle together.


For example: 100 Sts weighing 500# @ $260.00 a hundred is $1,300.00 a head. 3 die – now we have $1,340.00 left in 97 head, and most likely a vet bill. With cattle at these prices, we need to do everything we can to help the next buyer. What these feed yard and farmer feeders ask for most, is calves that have been vaccinated with Bovishield Gold 5. Second choice would be Pyramid 5. With either of these 2 vaccines, throw in a shot of Enforce and the One Shot for your own protection. For the Iowa Green Tag Preconditioning Certificate there are two groups of shots required – Clostridial Group -7 way; and the Histophilus Somni which will be killed virus most times, which is okay. The real vaccine that buyers want is modified live shots for IBR, PI-3, BVD, BRSV, and Mannheimia Haemolytica.


Personally, I’m not promoting one product over the other. Your veterinarian went to school 8 years and knows a lot more about medicines and taking care of your livestock needs than me. Communication between you, your veterinarian, the buyer and your livestock marketing agency can be a crucial part of making a profitable year now and in the future. Working together will make things better.


Last note: Yes, corn is cheap. But remember, for example: we sold Sts that weighed 828# for $230.25. Next we sold Sts that weighed 962# for $204.00. If the Sts that weigh 962# would have been green, they would have cost close to $220.00. Do what you need to do, but please be careful with the energy you put in your cattle whether it is corn, corn by products or whatever. The right rations will reward everybody. If you have any questions, please call your vet or JR and we can discuss any or all of your needs.




  Something’s are not just right. So far, this year 26 children have died in cars because their care taker left them in a hot car. How many pets have died? None. Maybe these people should have puppies instead of babies. It took 2 hours in Arizona to put an inmate to death. I guess they think this is cruel and unusual punishment. I wonder how the 2 people he killed felt. Maybe they just need to bring ropes back into play or the old firing squad way..
