August Beef Cattle Management Calendar

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

  • Continue fly control. As fly tags get old, you may need to begin spraying or using back rubs.
  • Plant winter grazing needs. Check on supply and prices for winter annual seed.
  • Treat for grubs between July and October.
  • Check water and minerals often.
  • Stockpile fescue for late fall grazing.
  • Get large, round bales into the barn or move to dry, well-drained areas.
  • Check supplemental feed prices. Byproduct feeds such as soyhulls and corn gluten are often cheaper in late summer.
