The numbers tell some very interesting stories. InApple sold 7, computers, but in an industry that sold ,
I was part of projects on grazing systems and crossbreeding but was also starting a new project on finishing cattle in south Mississippi. We were in the process of building a research feedlot but I needed to get something going right away. Fortunately, at that time, finishing cattle on grass was receiving a lot of attention in the southern region.
Some of the things that we learned then are still relevant 42 years later. Steers were grazed for days during the winter and received either 1 no grain, 2 one percent bodyweight BW of cracked corn throughout, or 3 cracked corn the last 64 days.
One percent BW for days would be in that range. Grain fed calves did tend to marble better and have greater fat thickness and yield grades.
But I did learn that most producers are hung up on crude protein levels when buying feed and pay little attention to energy levels.
That is still true today. These steers were not straight black or large framed. In fact they were harvested at lbs.!
Marbling is, to a large degree, a function of maturity. In other words, once a calve stops growing, it then begins to lay on external and, hopefully, internal fat marbling. Thus, early maturing smaller framed cattle might work better for forage diets. As I bred the cattle for more size and growth, it became more difficult to maintain marbling ability.
I know it sounds trivial and simple but you, or your source of breeding animals, should rear them under similar conditions in which you expect their offspring to be productive.
What about yellow fat on pasture cattle?
Fat color in this trial averaged creamy white instead of yellow. Other workers had reported that yellow fat was not a big problem when grazing winter annual pastures like ryegrass.
When the T-bone, round and rib-eyes from these steers were placed in supermarkets and grouped together not mixed with feedlot beeftheir sales showed no reluctance of consumers to purchase cattle finished on winter pasture.
I soon learned that the problem with building a market for pasture-fed beef is the seasonality of supply. Ideally, grazing should be year-round so that cattle can be harvested weekly throughout the year.
We need to re-think finishing on fescue and look at other grasses and legumes so that we can approach year-round grazing on high quality forages. Finally, I have also learned that there is no problem with niche markets.
Whatever you can do to successfully market your product is great.
If the consuming public demands beef produced on grass or in the feedlot or any other way, we can supply them. Hopefully we do it at a profit so that our operations are sustainable.
