Stocker-Yearling cattle can complement cow-calf operations by providing flexibility in utilizing grazing resources.

Topics discussed include:
- History of the operation and changes that have been made.
- How home raised and purchased calves complement the cow-calf enterprise by utilizing wet meadows and other grazing resources.
- The different methods of marketing that are utilized to sell yearling cattle.
