IRM Beef Redbooks

Redbook cdIRM Beef Redbooks are now available in an Excel Spreadsheet! The Redbook is a pocket-sized record book that contains more than 100 pages to record calving activity, herd health, pasture usage, cattle inventory, AI breeding and sales, plus a date book and notes section. The book also includes Beef Quality Assurance national guidelines and proper injection technique information. Redbooks are available at the Owyhee County Extension Office for our beef producers.

Thanks to Dr. Bruce Godfrey at Utah State University, the IRM Redbook has been developed into an Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is a great companion tool to the Redbook in that you can enter and analyze the data that you have recorded in the field. The spreadsheet features the same record keeping sections as the Redbook in an easy to use Excel format.

To download the spreadsheet free of charge go to www.beefusa.org/CMDocs/BeefUSA/Resources/NCBA-Redbook-Worksheet-Excel-2007.xlsx or if you would like to order a mini-cd the cost is $5 plus shipping and handling.
