June Beef Cattle Management Calendar

These are the general management needs, but there are additional needs in June that are based upon your calving season and can be located at the link provided below.

  • Cut hay! Plan on about 1 1/2 tons of hay per cow for this winter.
  • With adequate rainfall, hay should be cut every 4-5 weeks.
  • Apply 60-80 units of nitrogen per acre after cutting hybrid bermudagrass hay fields. (1 ton of hay removes 50 lbs of N, 14 lbs of P and 43 lbs of K from the land.)
  • Put hay in barn or move round bales to dry, welldrained areas and cover them.
  • Clip overgrown pastures.
  • Continue fly control.
  • Check mineral and water supplies often.
