Description:
An alternative enterprise for cattle ranchers who produce cows and calves is the production of stocker cattle. While stocker-only operations have generally been less profitable than cow-calf or cow-calf-yearling operations (Ruff et al., 2016), reasons for switching to stockers from cows could include producer desire to avoid winter feeding, to reduce labor associated with calving during inclement weather, to adapt more quickly to existing forage supplies, or to address potential disease issues within the cowherd.
