Stocker/ Backgrounder Health Management Tags & Software
Importance of healthy calves at the backgrounder
Utilizing backgrounders (stockers) to get cattle up to feed and in good health can play a very important role prior to cattle entering the feedlot. These calves have just been weaned and are going through an important growth and training stage before they enter the feedlot. Cattle are learning how to eat at the bunk and consuming a concentrate diet, all while battling any new diseases and stressors.
With labor shortages at the feedlot, backgrounders and stockers are an increasingly important step in feeding cattle. These calves can require constant attention tying up much of management’s time.
