Over the years we have quickly acquired some simple (and affordable) ranch necessities that make ranching easier for us. Below is a small list of our favorite ranching necessities that won’t break the bank.

1.) Performance Beef Software. No surprise that this was listed as a favorite ranching necessities. We first started using PB about 2 years ago and would recommend it for every backgrounding & feeding operation.⁣ It’s a feeding, billing, record keeping, and a performance analysis program all in one. It has saved Luke and I so much time, effort, and money.

2.) Estrotect Patches. These patches make heat detection simple and straight forward. You place one on each females tail head and they will turn pink after standing heat making identification and sorting easier. They’re not very expensive either.

products that make calving season easier

3.) Genex Foundation 150. The convenience of this “on the go colostrum” definitely makes calving easier. The bags are prepackaged so all you have to do is add water, and each bag comes with its own disposable tube so no washing or keeping track of them. Cannot recommend these enough.

4.) Tag Engraver & Ritchie Tags. Nothing is more frustrating that a faded ear tag. We use the brand Ritchie tags along with a Dremel tool to engrave them so the numbers will be permanent. This saves us future time, money and you guessed it – makes ranching easier. (note this is not our exact tool, but similar)

ranching necessities for working cattle

5.) Continuous Syringe. We love this syringe for processing large numbers of cattle. It clips on to the bottle so you don’t have to stop working to refill, which really helps keep the work flow going. Luke said it definitely needed to be on the necessity list. (note: this is not the exact syringe we have ours was given to us by a drug rep, but this syringe is similar)

6.) Te Pari Dosing Gun. We started using this dosing gun a year ago and it quickly became one of Lukes favorite things. It is powered electronically so it’s extremely easy to use, especially for people who struggle with hand strength. Furthermore, it keeps track of exactly what’s been used so billing is more accurate.

7.) Clean Up – Pour On by Bayer. This is the only brand we use for pour ons. We have tried other brands and Clean Up is the ONLY ONE that will take care of lice problems with just one application. Every other brand we always seem to have to do multiple treatments. Trust us on this one.

just a few more basic ranching necessities

8.) Gallagher Fault Finder. If you use electric fences on your operation at all, you must get a Gallagher fault finder. It shows you the strength of the fence but more importantly it will direct you to where the short is, which over miles and miles of fence has saved us more time than we can count.

9.) Tire Mats. We have these tire mats placed in a few different areas of the ranch – our semi load out as well as in front of our chute and they provide excellent traction for cattle in any high traffic areas. The load out was a new placement for us and we have seen a huge reduction in slipping/falling when loading out. Highly recommend them.

10.) AI Gun warmer Luke has AI’d cattle for 12 years now and used this gun for about half of them. It has the capability to store loaded guns at the proper temperature for up to 10 minutes. No more awkward straws in your waist band.

11.) DART GUN We have a dart gun for administering medicine. It makes it so easy to treat cattle quickly without having to rope and bring them back to a chute. If you don’t have one, highly recommend making the investment. READ ABOUT IT HERE

    It’s interesting to know that there is a technology used that has everything in it such as feeding, billing, record keeping, and even performance analysis programs. I can imagine including that kind of advancement in cattle sorting equipment and other machines that farmers used in their daily operations. It would probably lead to better quality products related to the kind of farm animals they have you can easily monitor the condition of every animal.
