Record Keeping

The old saying, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure,” holds true. Therefore, to make progress and profit in the cattle business, records must be kept.

Establish a system for herd recordkeeping, using programs from companies, producer organizations or Extension education services. They incorporate varying levels of technology from wireless or self-entry on your computer to mail-in sheets of handwritten ledgers.

Use a system that
you can easily and
accurately maintain
and remember,
it doesn't have to
be "high tech."
