There is no more critical factor impacting beef cow-calf profits than controlling feed costs, and one part of that is extending grazing days and improving performance on grass. The latest U.S. Census of Agriculture indicates that pasture acres were reduced by 660,000 acres (21 percent) in Iowa between 2007 and 2012.
