Diets consist mainly of corn gluten and soyhulls. Cattle have ad-lib access to fescue/clover hay and water. PBS has equipment that is capable of formulating a variety of diets in addition to those currently being fed.
The replacement heifers and cow/calf pairs are raised on fescue/clover grass pasture (PBS Facilities) and are fed free-choice mineral. This commercial herd is bred in either the fall or spring season by artificial insemination (AI). Together, this group typically amounts to 60 – 120+ head with room for expansion. PBS is able to adapt the numbers of both the stockers and the cow and heifers to a size and structure to fit a trial’s requirement. All ages (calves, yearlings, adults) as well as reproductive status (virgin, fresh/open and pregnant) are capable of being integrated into the PBS herd.
PBS Feeding Capabilities:
PBS has strong relationships with multiple privately owned herds in the area that consist of starters/backgrounders as well as cow/calf herds. By working directly with producers, PBS is capable of creating a direct connection between research and implementation of results into typical production settings. These producers provide a variety in animal handling/ herd structure and represent a proportion of this nation’s industry operations.
