The OK Steer Feedout is designed to help cattle producers learn more about their operation and performance. The program give producers the opportunity to have their calf crop evaluated for carcass merit and feedyard performance by feeding a set of their calves in the feedout program, Greg Highfill reported for Enid News.
The calves will be fed in a commercial feedyard that is being coordinated by the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service. The 2014-2015 OK Steer Feedout test calves should be at Cattleman's Choice Feedyard on Nov. 16. All steers in the program need to be weaned by Oct. 2 to participate in this year's test, which is designed for steers born after Nov. 1, 2013.
Ranchers will have to pay a $25 fee. For more details and an entry form go to BeefExtension.com and find the OK Steer Feedout tab in the left column or go to: http://www.beefextension.com/new%20site%202/steerfeedout.html.
