Calve in Sync with Nature

Here is another thought from Burke Teichert, a man whom I’ve yet to meet, who has words of wisdom and experience worth pondering taken from his column “Strategic Planning for the Ranch” in Beef magazine”  Although, this one seems a no-brainer and has been promoted and taught by the late Dr Dick Diven, very few of us have embraced the concept.

“This may do more to reduce cost and increase profit than any other one thing.”

Burke Teichert, a consultant on strategic planning for ranches, retired in 2010 as vice president and general manager of AgReserves Inc.  He resides in Orem, Utah.  Contact him at burketei@comcast.com

We switched to late spring/early summer calving back in the late 90’s after attending one of Dr Diven’s Low Cost Cow Calf 3-day schools.  Quality of life for both man and beast shot through the roof!
