By July 1 rate had slowed or grazing experiments gain for dry cows or not available, but it to assume wOUld also gain weight a month or two and off in an extreme the best time to steers, Kearl Possible price-trend along with data from experiments. Re- in a Wyo- bulletin, "Cattle and Ranchers' (No. 408). shows ranchers the best results by between June 15 and years. Whether prices are trending upward or downward, there is little point in using scarce, valuable feed for salable animals if their gains drop much below a pound a head a day, Kearl stated. A second recommendation is to sell fat cows or yearlings of near- maximum value, the UW agricul- tural economist continued. In a particular year, almost 25 per- cent of the cows and heifers past two years old on Wyoming ranges are drys. Last year there were ap- proximately 180,000 dry cows and 2-year-old heifers on the range, along with some 425,000 short yearling steers and heifers. Plains-area ~ranchers who graze both yearling animals and breed- ing herds can gather their cattle for market in mid-summer easier than can mountain-area ranchers. By selling some cattle now, they can conserve forage and may not have to buy high-priced hay later. In the mountain .areas range pastures are grazed only in the growing season and should be used as long as animals are gain- ing. Also ranchers may find it unfeasible to gather cattle for sale in mid-summer. They should keep a sharp eye on yearlings and patential cull cows, however. If they can market these animals at near-maximum weights, they can save forage or scant hay and crop aftermath for animals they keep. Renting pasture in drought years is expensive Kearl said. Yearlings grazing range pastures monderately, gain only a~bout one pound a day in September, even in normal years. If pasture rent is high, ranchers may be better off to market livestock before rates of gain begin to drop drast- ically, Kearl advised.
