The Oklahoma Beef Cattle ManualSince 1983, the Oklahoma Beef Cattle Manual has been a key resource for beef cattle producers, extension professionals, veterinarians and many others in the beef cattle industry. The original Manual was a concise resource for information on beef cattle production and management, including nutrition, reproduction, animal health, genetics, and the design of cattle working facilities. More recent versions of the manual include chapters addressing economics, marketing and risk management, business planning and tax considerations, leasing arrangements, enterprise performance analysis, livestock insurance, forage production, grazing management, drought management, beef quality assurance, waste management, and biosecurity.
