BROOKINGS, S.D. - Given the current economic situation, when it comes to raising their own replacement heifers, cattle producers need to sharpen their pencils and to ensure profits are still there at the end of the day. "With all the day-to-day tasks that need to get done, it is easy to stick to tradition and ignore the fact that what has always been done in the past, may not make "cents" this year," said Heather Gessner, SDSU Extension Livestock Business Management Field Specialist. "Producers often overlook replacement heifer development plans," said Grussing, of the plans which are most often implemented soon after weaning. "Producers that have not evaluated the cow costs or heifer development costs may not be using the best replacement method for their operation." Grussing explained that just because heifers have been kept in the past, it does not mean they need to be kept every year. Here are a few questions Grussing encouraged cattle producers to ask themselves before raising replacement heifers this fall vs. buying replacement heifers. 1. Does it make financial sense this year? 2. Did you considered the true cost of raising replacement heifers? erested in INTERESTED IN THIS SPOT? this spot?

Can value be realized by selling feeder heifers and buying bred heifers later? 4. What factors or opportunity costs need to be accounted for when making this decision? Costs of raising replacement heifers "Many heifer development expenses do not require producers to actually write a check, thus are often unaccounted for in the heifer development budget," explained Gessner. These fixed expenses, Gessner said include costs that will occur regardless of the number of heifers kept for development (example: feeder wagon, tractor, pickup). Another common item missing in the budget, Gessner said, is cow depreciation. "Cow depreciation needs to be accounted for, especially when purchase price, salvage value and years of service may differ from year to year," she said. Depreciation Gessner explained, also serves as an indicator when evaluating if replacement heifers are to be raised and developed or bought as bred heifers. "Value can also be lost because of not taking into consideration the opportunity cost of production," Gessner said. The heifer calf has a market value at weaning. The bred heifer enterprise should "purchase" the heifer calf at either Director Of Nursing The Director of Nursing is responsible for assuring that services are provided in a safe, efficient, and cost effective manner that enhances patient, staff, and physician satisfaction.

When penciling this out, Gessner recommended to start by assigning values to records in a budget to determine the cost of production, distinguishing direct from fixed expenses (Table 1). Other expenses/opportunity costs that might not fall into the above categories but may need a value assigned to them include: • Value of the heifer calf; • Extra pen/pasture to manage heifers separately from mature cows; • Extra Bulls - maintenance/feed costs and purchase of calving-ease heifer bulls; • Pregnancy Rate: 5 - 10% of replacements will not breed and their expenses need to be accounted for (Replacement charge per cow); •Call 665-5884 to resale value of culls; and Cull percentage & • Death losses. place your ad will help Using a budget here. the total costs of raising replacement heifers.
