“Beef raised in the Northeast tends to be well-fed because of the high-quality forages in the region and because producers have been practicing what we call sustained nutrition,” said Perry, who has more than 20 years’ experience working with beef cattle.
“Last winter, regional beef producers were challenged by poor feed quality and low supplies, so this presentation by Ted Perry on how cow nutrition does indeed impact calf health and viability is timely as we head into the 2013-14 winter season,” said Northern New York Regional Livestock Team Leader Betsy Hodge with Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County.
