The Future Cow-calf Producer (Alberta, Canada; General Resource)

The Future Cow-calf Producer was recommended to Farm Blogs by Scott, at Cedar Cove Farm.

It's an unusual blog, and if you are a cow lover, definetely one to visit regularly.

Written by a a 4th year undergraduate with a major in Animal Science, currently attending university at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, it's is all about beef cattle, from cow-calf to feedlot, facts and information that comes with knowing how to raise cattle economically and practically, as well as the general cattle industry.

The Future Cow-calf Producer wrote to me and explained more about her background, her plans for the future and her blog.

"I was born and raised on a mixed farm near Barrhead, Alberta, Canada. We have two quarter sections (~160 acres each) owned and operated by a family-run farm business for mostly hay (alfalfa-brome-timothy hay) and barley for grain and silage, with a little canola. We also have half of a quarter fenced off for pasture and drylot for backgrounding stocker steers.

I have been thinking and planning in the past year or so to turn our stocker operation into commercial cow-calf in the future, thus the blog I created.

I even share personal experiences with cattle from time to time, whether it be working at the vet clinic or going on a field trip for school."
