September Beef Cattle Management Calendar

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

  • Quality of bermudagrass and bahia declines rapidly from now to frost. Keep an eye on heifers and supplement as needed.
  • Stockpile fescue for late fall.
  • Begin planting winter grazing.
  • Take stock of your hay supply so additional cuttings or purchases can be made. (Send samples in for analysis.)
  • Keep a close check on supplemental feed prices. Corn and byproduct feeds such as cottonseed can usually be bought cheaper in the fall.
  • Plan where winter grazing will be over-seeded into pastures. Graze these areas close or clip prior to planting.
