• Economics of Selected Alternative Calving Dates

      Mueller, R. G.; Harris, G. A. (Society for Range Management, 1967-03-01)
      Shifting calving dates from present early spring to fall or late spring dates offers an opportunity to increase income to range-based cattle operations in north central or north-eastern Washington. Lower death losses and better marketing opportunities more than offset higher winter feed costs. Fall calves also make more efficient use of abundant spring ranges in this region, and dry cows make more uniform use of mountain summer ranges.
