Cow-Calf Operations Shift From Pounds-Only to High-Quality

Fri, 17 Jun 2011 16:50:56 CDT

Oklahoma cattleman, Jimmy Taylor from Elk City, is re-focusing his cow-calf operation to focus more on producing the "ultimate steak" for consumers. This shift from pounds-only to high-quality has also led to a change for Taylor with retained owndership through finishing and on to the packinghouse, where most of his calves meet the requirements for the Certified Angus Beef Brand.

Taylor says the carcass weight has become more important and he is beginning to focus on the value of each calf independently. Taylor also says that these changes have brought other factors into play such as cattle handling with low-stress environments, as well as nutrition for the calves.

Click on the video below to hear the rest of the Jimmy Taylor's story, as well as the benefits he has found in changing his cow-calf operation, from the Certified Angus Beef, LLC.
