MUNDAY AUTO SUPPLY 134 E. Main, Munday by CHARLIE SIEPEL, Knox County extension agent m hese Cattle Crossbreeding Discussed Cattlemen should plan a crossbreeding program with a specific purpose in mind. Crossbreeding can be used to provide increased vigor or capacity for growth. Breed characteristics can be matched and combined for your specific market, feed supply and other resources distinct to your operation. The germplasm base for beef cattle production in the U. S. has been expanded considerably in the last ten years. This increase has resulted primarily from development of appropriate quarantine facilities and procedures in Canada. The use of European breeds in a crossbreeding program has resulted in a substantial increase in weaning weights. These in- creases are due to the ad- vantages of hybrid vigor on survival and growth of FI calves and advantages of maternal heterosis on repro- duction and maternal ability of crossbred cows. The crossbred cows contri- bute more than 50% to the increase in performance. The use of Zebu and European breeds result in ever higher levels of hybrid vigor. However, faster gaining breed groups generally have heavier birth weights and higher levels of calving diffi- culty. Incidence of calving difficulty can be a serious problem in cows calving at two and three years of age. If efforts are made to avoid. using bulls with excessive birth weights, the calving dif- ficulty is not a serious prob- lem in the younger cows. Breed groups reaching the small degree of marbling in the fewest days tended to be the most efficient to the grade and point of USDA choice. Evaluation to a grade and point of USDA choice assumes that feeding to a small degree of marbling is justified in terms of improv- ing eating quality, an assump- tion not documented in eval- uation of flavor, juiciness and tenderness by trained ~nnso~ panels. Difference among bl:eed groups are large for marb- ling scores had higher fat trim and lower retail product percentages. Research has indicated there is limited op- portunity through breeding to increase marbling without reducing yield of retail product. Research has shown that steers from fatter gaining breed groups use feed more efficiently from weaning to slaughter and produce car- casses with a higher percen- tage of retail product when compared at the same weight or age end points. To maximize your beef production, it is important to match the crossbreeding system and the breed charac- teristics with the feed re- sources available in Knox County. High Protein Grass Is Not An Accident Which grass has the best protein content for use in Knox County? Actually, protein content of a grass is influenced mainly by two factors: amount of fertilizer it receives and stage of maturity. Fertilizer increases protein content. Nitrogen" has been recognized for a long time to be important. The more nitrogen applied, the higher the protein content. Phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and other nutrients are also important for improving protein content in grass. All soils in Knox County are inherently low in nitrogen, and many also are low in phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and other nutrients. A soil test is the best guide for planning fer- tilization practices for pasture hay. Maturity of a grass greatly influences protein content and other quality factors. As grasses begin to mature, State protein content, digestibility and other quality charac- teristics decline rapidly. White As a rule, grasses are best area quality when at three to four effort weeks of growth. Grasses crease which make seedbeds, such as Kleingrass, johnsongrass and bluestem, should be grazed or harvested for hay tic. before seedheads appear. Ar~ Coastal bermudagrass 82 in makes no viable seed and -Haskdl should be used by the time it The has three to four weeks of Saf~Y growth.
