My prayers go out to you and your daughter.  May God bless and heal your daughter.  Just remember from the words of "Facing The Giants" movie.  Never give up.  Never backdown.  Never loose faith.

When I was 11 I got my first bottle calf heifer. The next fall when she was bred I bought another bred heifer with money that I borrowed from my grandpa. They calved the next spring and with that money I continued buying show steers and saving that money that I earned off of them. Two years ago I bought a registered Angus heifer and last year I bought a really nice show heifer. I am up to four cows now and a new heifer is coming tomorrow. I am planning to continue on increasing my herd.

Congrats on the new heifer!   Its always excitin' gettin' a new addition to the family.  Just sad my dad is making me stop buying so many.  I get bidder happy... (lol)

Im a fourth generation also.  Great grandparents on my mommas side had dairy catlle and were pretty big into that, I guess.  Grandpa's on both side have really nice beef cattle and now my momma and daddy have a herd.  That is how I was influenced so deeply.  So I guess ya could say it is litterally in my blood and I love it!

My dad gave me and my two sisters a heifer when we were born.  He gave us a choice and a about a year old we would choose our heifer which was born in the same year we were.  Well, of course they've all died now.  All being considered aged cows...doesn't that make me feel old at the young age of 16...lol.  Well I got started into the PB Salers 2 years after we made the trip to KS to buy a herd bull.  I bought my first heifer with the money from my steers and then a few more.  This year I took out a farm loan from the USDA and I purchased the best ones of the lot.  Two red heifers and one misfit black heifer that I always completely forget about because she runs with my dads herd.  I believe I am up to six head now and that is as much as my dad is allowing me until we get a bigger farm. 

Thats my story.

That is 3lbs of gain a day.  That is pretty good.  Nice steer!

That is a very good idea!   Also for shows I am looking for a coiled hose that just coils itself.

What about granola hay?  I hadn't even heard of it until a few weeks ago at my Junior Nationals.

I am 16 and have got a small herd started.  I was meaning to have both cross and purebred, but my last commerical lost her calf and will be sold.  So for me I am only going to have purebred right now, but maybe after college I will find a nice commerical herd to buy.  So ya variety is good and selling the commerical calves every year will help with the show expenses.
