Small-scale cattle operations sometimes struggle to market their livestock at prices high enough to recover costs. Preconditioning programs and co-ops provide opportunities for local producers to pool cattle and add value.  Preconditioning refers to management practices implemented around weaning that focus on improving immune system function and nutritional status of calves to reduce risk of sickness and mortality. Co-ops can help producers better market and process livestock. Learn more about these systems of management during this fall session of the Cattle Management School.
