Feeding dairy steers has been common on northeast and east central Iowa farms and others are looking at dairy steers with supplies of feeder cattle being low.
An educational conference on feeding dairy steers will be the focus of two Extension programs in NE Iowa, August 6 at Monticello and August 7 at Cresco.
Dr. Lee Schultz, ISU Extension Livestock Economist will discuss the current feeder calf availability including both beef and dairy calves, as well as share his outlook on the fed cattle market and profitability in the feedlot industry. Dr. Dan Loy, ISU Beef Specialist, will discuss the use of growth promoting technologies such as implants, ionophores and beta-agonists in dairy beef steers and their impacts on marketing options.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Steven Rust from Michigan State University, speaking on their research and experience in feeding Holstein steers for the beef market. His research includes feeding systems, rations, and housing for Holstein beef steers. Another featured speaker will be Shawn Walter from Professional Cattle Consultants (PCC) at Hydro, Oklahoma. Shawn will share some of their closeout and performance data comparing Holstein to beef cattle. PCC has over 35 years of feedlot data with over 120 million head of cattle in their database, and they currently represent over 2.5 million head of feeding capacity from more than 100 feedyards. Dr. Darren Katzung, DVM, with Southwest Vet Services in Wisconsin, specializing in dairy calf health and will share his experiences with calf health and its impact on feedyard performance. A panel on marketing fed dairy beef will discuss the options and preferences of packers.
