Southern Plains Pointers: Sept 2015


 It’s Official!

 Texas and the southern plains are back in a drought. Just last spring, we were literally under water. Some regions are becoming severe while others are just dang dusty.   

  Unfortunately, the drought is hitting southern plains bison herds at the worst time of year for health and reproduction. Some bison will be resilient on their own, while others will depend on the human element for health.  This year what’s happening is a perfect storm for causing unhappy bison producers for the following reasons. 1] Excessive rains [understatement] in the spring propelled excessive parasites in the habitats. We had lush – tall – green and an accelerated cool season explosion that carried with it, an accelerated explosion of parasites to the bison.  2] Immediately following the flooding, we had drought – heat – slow starting warm season grasses because of cool-season shading, then weak plants dealing with everything from root necrosis to no moisture. 3] Herds that this scenario fits are potentially wrapping up the breeding season in a low nutritional regime, potentially parasite laden cows and low body scores going into winter which is the polar opposite of functional.  Bison are the great survivalists, and will survive, but that’s about all they will do if your conditions are not optimum. Conversely, and like clock-work, the opposite is true.

  If you are reading this, and you feel like the negative scenario fits your situation, you still have time to react and balance a very un-balanced system to the benefit of herd- health and the economics of your model. Step 1] Carefully take the gun barrel out of your mouth J Step 2] Ascertain the actual nutritional regime by testing your grasses. Different grasses behave differently such as native-range vs. improved [exotic] pastures.  3] Make sure you have an adequate mineral program 4] Run fecal analysis on your herd and only trust low-count results, as opposed to zero-count. 5] React to your findings immediately – there’s still time to correct and cause a positive outcome for the next calving season.
 
  What you learn this year about your herd and their habitat will become valuable to you in future years, possibly even this next coming year according to meteorologists. It’s always good to have a plan and always good to have that plan be based on accurate information as opposed to guesses.  Find ways to facilitate the herds’ ability to [communicate] to you about what they need.  Perceive supplementation as an investment, within a budget, and analyze the return-potential compared to not investing and low production. Finally; for all in the southern plains who have been through previous droughts - step 6] Make sure your boat-payments are current!!

Harvest Time Safety 

Do not bypass safety this fall

Harvest is hectic. When you’re in a rush, it’s tempting to bypass simple safety procedures that might slow you down. But taking the extra time can be a lifesaver. So ease up and take responsibility for your own safety. Get trained for each new task before you get started, be alert for hazards and figure out how to manage them. Remove any unnecessary risks ahead of time, and learn to effectively control the risks that can’t be removed.

Volunteers Return Home from D.C. after Successful Meetings
 
A delegation of 15 bison ranchers and marketers began returning home from Washington, D.C. last night after two intensive days of meetings at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, The Department of Interior, and on Capitol Hill.
 
The grassroots lobbying delegation prodded federal officials on a series of issues ranging from herd health to international trade, and lobbied Congress to designate bison as the official National Mammal and to overturn the Environmental Protection Agency's recent amendments to the Clean Water Act. The group held four meetings with U.S, Department of Agriculture Officials, one meeting with top leaders at the Department of Interior, and 18 meetings with Congressional officials.
 
Joining President Bruce Anderson of South Dakota, Executive Director Dave Carter, and Assistant Director Jim Matheson in the Capital this week were:
 
Martha and Wyatt Anderson, South Dakota
Donnis Baggett, Texas
Peter Cook, Indiana
Bob Dineen, Colorado
Moritz Espy, South Dakota
Dick Gehring, Kansas
Jeff, Graber, Virginia
Amil Kleinert, Indiana
Paul & Cindy Kolesar, Alberta, Canada
Jason Moore, Indiana
Ace Ward, Colorado
Keith Yearout, Kansas
