Animal Care & the Modern Rancher

Cattle ranchers work diligently to manage their cattle for optimum health. It begins with proper nutrition. Whether out on grass or in a feedyard, they work with nutritionists to make sure the cattle are receiving the right balance of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals to keep them healthy. Ranchers also work with their veterinarian to determine the disease risks their cattle may face and develop a "herd health plan" to minimize those risks.
