July Beef Cattle Management Calendar

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

  • Continue fly control. As tags get old, you may need to begin spraying or using back rubs.
  • Clip overgrown pastures.
  • Check for pinkeye, cancer eye and foot rot.
  • Send in forage samples on hay now so you will have results to use for planning winter feeding.
  • Check water and minerals often. Plenty of clear water is critical in summer. At 90 degrees F, a mature cow nursing a calf drinks about 17 gallons of water a day.
  • Treat for grubs between now and October 1.
