Page 11-a use horse sense in culling cows official advises by Allen Alexander Raleigh feb. 18 it use horse sense in culling your cows if you Are a Dairy Farmer and can answer yes to the two following questions the time has arrived for you to Start culling your Low producers. The questions Are 1 is your Winter Supply of Hay and silage get Ting Short 2 Are you getting paid for some surplus milk George Hyatt in charge of Dairy Extension work at stale College says the Best place to Start culling is in the milking line. A Holstein should produce least 25 pounds a Day. Higher test ing Breeds such As Jersey and Guernsey should t be allowed to fall beneath 20 pounds a Day. However Hyatt emphasizes if a cow Falls below these production figures this alone should not result in her being culled. There other variable factors and in the final analysis cow culling boils Down to a question of common Jennse. For instance maybe old Bossy has been a Fine producer and Sud Denly Fer production drops below the profit margin. It t could be be cause of her Breeding Date or maybe she s having a bad year and you figure Shell be Back in Peak form the following year. It a cow is Over 10 years old her production Falls chances Are according to Hyatt she s Over the Hill. However you May want to keep her for another Heifer. Also there arc factors other than production that go into deciding which cow should become a cull. Perhaps you have a three Tealer. This poses a milking problem. Or maybe old Bossy does t Breed properly and is not As healthy As the could be. Hyatt says one reason some dairymen Haven t culled As heavily As they should is because of the drop in beef prices. However he adds generally speaking you re better off Selling the cull at a loss than keeping her at a loss and hoping for a Rise in the beef mar Ket. In addition to costing you Money while she s alive the cull cow also is eating feed that the better cows could get and from which Bhe could make More milk. As Hyatt says save feed Lor the Best and cull the the Extension service recommends that milk Farmers have regular Dairy Herd improvement tests. However if a Farmer does t take this service Hyatt recon ments that Scales be Hung in the barn. You should weigh in your production at least twice a month.
