As a means to both market an impact and Inspire others, this video was created with support from the Forest Landowner Education Program to highlight Legacy Planning and Woodland owner education.


Weaned and preconditioned feeder calves outperform un-weaned cattle in the stocker and feedlot phase of production, as they are better equipped to handle the stress of shipping.  Cattle buyers, offer premium prices for weaned cattle, increasing producer income.  However, weaning calves can be a challenge as producers take on the risk of keeping them healthy during a 45 day period before marketing them.  To help beef producers overcome these challenges, a Low Stress Weaning Workshop was held in Augusta County.   Research based, low stress weaning practices were discussed, along with calculations for breakeven prices and net returns per cow for weaning.  In a post program survey, 39% producers indicated that they expected to save an average of $11-$20/calf on weaning and preconditioning costs as a result of attending the program.  Based on responses of total cow herd size, producers will save a total of $12,450 by implementing low stress weaning practices and incorporating weaning enterprise budgets into their operations.
