    The best how-to book on stocker cattle I've every read. 3. "Pasture Profits with Stocker Cattle" This book was written by Allan Nation about Gordon Hazard's operation. A good book but I like the book written by Gordon better. By reading both books, I think a person might get a better perspective on things than by reading only one of them. May I also recommend two books: “Knowledge Rich Ranching” and “Pasture Profits with Stocker Cattle.” Allan Nation, the author, is a smart man, he called Bud Williams a genius and the same can apply for Gordon Hazard, the man profile in the Pasture Profits book. Cattle are amazing animals, a Cow can survive and raise a calf on pastures.

    Every stocker operator worth his cake wagon knows about using feed to extend forage, increase stocking rate, or increase pounds, while also delivering ionophores and whatnot. To be clear, we're talking about light supplementation feeding the equivalent of lbs./day as an example and heavy supplementation where cattle grazing forage are also fed a ration equivalent to % of their body .   How to Raise Beef Cattle for Profit on a Small Farm Build a fence around all available pasture. The more pasture the cattle can graze on, the less input costs -- such as hay and grain -- will be required. A single strand of electric wire works better at containing the cattle than barbed wire.

    If I could only read 1 book about stocker cattle it would be "Thoughts and advice from an old Cattleman" by Gordon Hazard. This is the best book I have ever read regarding stocker cattle. Lots of good ideas that are applicable to cow-calf also. You can get it from Powerflex fence. They also have Greg Judy's books. Quality Pasture by Allan Nation. Farm Fresh Direct Marketing by Allan Nation. Pasture Profits With Stocker Cattle by Allan Nation. You Can Farm by Joel Salatin. Holy Cows, Hog Heaven by Joel Salatin. Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal by Joel Salatin. Family Friendly Farming by Joel Salatin. Pastured Poultry Profits by Joel Salatin.

Another fantastic book from Allan Nation, author and editor of the Stockman Grass Farmer is an essential read for anyone raising beef cattle for profit, and absolutely necessary if you custom graze cattle, raise stocker cattle, or finish cattle for slaughter.

Stocker grazing is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional cow-calf production in many areas. Two main reasons are that some producers are tired of messing with cows year-round and/or greater profit potential.

Many stocker producers, however, are disappointed when they ship cattle and find gains of lbs./day instead of the 2+ lbs. they had expected.

The first inclination is. One thing I would mention to other readers is to carefully read the sections on options for profit and risk.

Stocker operations require significant experience and skill. Selecting and buying calves, managing a health and nutrition program, running the grazing plan, understanding marketing these are high-skill ventures, and not for the faint. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Nation, Allan.

The stocker cattle industry is built on the premise that farmers buy small cattle with the intention of achieving maximum weight gain in about 90 days. Most often, these cattle are grazed, meaning it’s imperative to provide enough good quality forage to sustain the herd.

Stocker producers may raise cattle seasonally or year round, using small grains pasture, warm or cool season grasses or any combination thereof. The type of production system employed by the producer will affect the time period in which cattle are received. To better understand the different mentality of a stocker cattle operation, the longest ownership of a stocker calf is eight months and the shortest is around two months.

Unlike a cow-calf production, where cows are looked at as a long-term investment, the stocker cattle industry runs on a shorter time frame. The budget developed to calculate the values in Table 1 showed a profit of $/hd. The analysis indicated that decreasing the purchase price for the same quality and weight stocker by $/lb results in an increased profit of $28/hd.

Reducing the pasture lease $10/acre increases profit $5/hd. (In other words, take this with a grain of salt.) I recommend Allan Nation's book Pasture Profits with Stocker Cattle, where he details Gordon Hazard's operation.

Gordon watches the cattle cycle and when the cycle is at the top or headed down, he books the sale forward, locking in the price. So there's a way to make money with it, regardless of.pasture profits with stocker cattle allan nation economic theories mississippi grazier gordon hazard cow grass hay book e
