 Clinic Highlights

1. Several quality attributes and management programs afford sellers premiums (Saitone)  

2. Research consistently finds nutrient concentrations in pasture and rangeland runoff to be well below levels of concern (Tate)

3. Most irrigated pastures and meadow systems are sinks for Nitrogen and Phosphorus, as well as sediment (Tate)

4. Spatial discounts closely approximate shipping costs; consistent with FOB pricing (Saitone)

5. Predators can have direct and indirect impacts on livestock producers (Macon/Roche)

6. UCCE and UC Davis have a research project underway with California ranchers analyzing predator impacts. (Macon/Roche/Schohr)

7. Information on predator concerns and control options available for local ranchers. (Schohr) 18-01 Fact Sheet - Ranching with Predators

8. Vaccinating your cattle is like insurance on your ranch (Strickler)

9. Vaccines must be stored, handled and administered properly to be effective (McNabb) 

10. There is no “standard” vaccination program that can be recommended for all animals; each situation must be evaluated individually (McNabb)
