Getting the cattle out to treatment pastures is not as easy as one might think. This two-day process needed all hands on deck to complete. Step one is to record each steers weight before the shrinking process. Shrinking issimply keeping steers without food for around12 hours. This will give us an accurate weight, without as much gut fill. As a team, we used this data to allot each steer to a pasture. It’s important to use the most average steers, dropping off the highest and lowest weight. Once the data was organized it was easier to find the 11 extra animals we needed. Extra steers are kept in case an animal on trial has an issue. Once allotted, we then know what color tag each animal should receive according to what pasture they will be in. Color coordination helps us visually assess what animals should be together and what treatment pasture they are on. The teamwork keeps going the next morning to weigh each animal again for his shrunk weight. At this time we tagged, dewormed, and separated each animal into pins according to their allotment. Each pin was then separated by color to allow us to move the steers into pasture. After many hours of hard work animals were on their correct treatment pasture. Moving forward, the steers will be rotated to different paddocks within their treated pastures every three to four days.
