NCBA’s Pocket-Sized Redbook Has Offered Efficient Recordkeeping to Ranchers for More Than 30 Years
A pocket-sized recordkeeping tool from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, offered to cattle producers for more than 30 years, is now available for 2019. NCBA’s Redbook helps cattle producers effectively and efficiently record their daily production efforts, helping enhance profitability.
The 2019 Redbook has more than 100 pages to record calving activity, herd health, pasture use, cattle inventory, body condition, cattle treatment, AI breeding records and more. It also contains a Producers Guide for Judicious Use of Antimicrobials in Cattle, Beef Quality Assurance Best Practices and proper injection technique information, as well as a calendar and notes section.
“The Redbook has become a vital tool for U.S. cattlemen and women in their efforts to detail actions and practices on farms and ranches,” according to Dan Kniffen, a Pennsylvania beef producer. “It’s a way to document both the daily challenges and the positive steps they’re taking to show continuous improvement on their operations. Furthermore, in this age of electronics the paper Redbook is cost-effective and always available, regardless of internet service or access to electricity. It’s a time-proven handheld method for record-keeping.”
Redbooks can be purchased for $7.00 each, plus shipping and handling. Customization of the Redbooks is available (for 100 books or more). To order, visit www.beefusa.org, click on “Producers.”
