Herd Booster Supplement Boosts Operation's Conception Rates by 15% 8/18 10:28AM
In 1935, in an effort to help ranchers hit hard by the Dust Bowl, the U.S. government bought 547 head of Hereford cattle in Arizona and New Mexico, and shipped them to the Seminole reservation in Florida. While the purchase may have helped the ranchers, it didn't do the cattle any favors. Most couldn't survive on the poor-quality flatwoods forages.
