Take Home Point - Adding annual crops to a perennial grazing system for steers at the DREC improved steer grazing performance, shortened time on feed and improved carcass merit at harvest. Feeding yearling steers on grass is a plus, but adding annual forage is even better. This study will attempt to determine if a greater economic return per acre can be obtained by grazing yearling beef cattle on annual forages compared to traditional small grain crops. In addition, the study will be used to supplement ongoing research being conducted in western North Dakota to help develop the needed management strategies for. Nutrition is the most important limiting factor of beef herd reproductive performance. An understanding of the principles underlying the nutritional management of breeding females is necessary, including a working knowledge of the different energy measuring systems commonly used and their applications for different classes of animals, activities, and feedstuffs. Goals / Objectives 1) Evaluate the influence of rotational grazing systems that vary in degree of intensity upon the performance and economic return of grazing beef cows and their nursing calves. 2) Compare the performance and economic return of beef cows and their progeny that vary in percentage of Angus and Simmental breeding within the cow-calf and feedlot phases of the beef production system.

By moving cattle before cattle regraze already grazed plants, pasture growth is increased and cattle continue to graze high quality vegetative stands.

Young green shoots of speargrass can have protein contents of 15% to 18% whereas the young growing tips of the shrub legume leucaena, can have protein contents of up to 28%. Generally, cattle grazing pastures with high legume contents will have much better diet quality than cattle on unfertilised grass only pastures.
Chemical crude protein concentration is determined by multiplying the feed nitrogen concentration by because protein molecules contain an average of 16 percent nitrogen (1/16 = ).

† Comparing steer performance, Global Positioning System (GPS) locations of grazing, diet samples, and ingestive behavior at each proportion of the prairie dog colony per pasture allows prediction of the optimal proportion of colonization, which enables selection of the most balanced diet for cattle to meet performance goals.
This system favors individual animal performance through low stocking density and light to moderate grazing pressure, as well as relatively little movement of cattle through pastures.
Switchback System The switchback grazing system takes relatively little management. It includes two pasture units and one herd.

The sheep were Beulah Speckled Face ewes and their single Suffolk-cross lambs while the cattle were yearling Charolais-cross steers. Six ‘core’ steers and six ‘core’ ewes and their lambs grazed plots, as appropriately, while additional, non-experimental steers and ewes and their lambs were used to maintain sward by: Heifers have a longer postpartum interval.
It becomes shorter if heifers with their first calf are separated from mature cows 60 days prior to calving and after calving. This allows them to obtain their share of feed that is essential for a rapid return to estrus.
