The Big Show / Re: Fu Manchu and brisket disease
« on: September 22, 2019, 09:04:54 AM »
It's a tough thing we have to deal with up here in the high country. We lose them as babies usually if they have some sort of illness at a young age. Showstopper, no need to worry about Fu at low elevations. Only thing I'd add to the CSU article is the higher the animal is PAP tested the more accurate the test. Tests taken under 6,000 ft elevation are not near as accurate as those taken over that. For anyone looking for true high altitude cattle PM me I've got a pile for sale this November. Neighbor who I work closely with is having a large bred female sale.

Yes. We had to stop useing him right away. They all PAP high and we lost a couple of calves. Our high seller last year was a Fu and we lucked out. He ended up winning a competitive county fair in CO but I won't use the bull again. To bad cause he worked well for us. By the way I do have a few units of semen left that's for sale.

N Bar in western western Kansas has some good ones. Nolin Ward is as good at it as anybody.

The Big Show / Re: Breeding issues.....

Sounds like you have an issue that a good vet needs to look at. As far as watching a bull breed cows, In all the years of doing this it's almost hopeless. I had a fall bull (18 months old) that I put with 28 head one spring. Watched him like a hawk never once did I see that bull breed a cow. The next spring I had 26 calves within 2 weeks. Some bulls will breed a cow, leave and you never know they did. I wish you the best but I'd sure get him to a vet. Good luck.

That is a part of the body of the clipper. Like I said they tend to just fall off. It really doesn't seem to effect the life of the clippers but like all of my equipment I try to put them away clean. I usually just blow them off real good and oil them up.

Most people say that they can see the blade and hair better. As for me they seem to just fall off and I can never find them.

I kept 5 calves in the fall of '17. But I had a wreck getting them breed. Had 3 open and I have no reason why. Of the 2 IGWT that calved this spring, 1 is a good big bagged nice cow. Other one is thin and doesn't have much of a bag. That being said both calves have grown well and seem to be ok. The one on the lighter uddered heifer should make the creep pasture and I'll see if he makes the cut this fall. So to answer your question I don't know. I have a hard time looking at two year olds this time of year and saying how well they milk.

The Big Show / Re: *New* Burwell sire working on all breeds

I went back 45 minutes after I saw her lay down and start pushing. Calf was up and trying to nurse when I got back. Lots of vigor and made right, 74 lbs BW.  Really pleased with our 1st Burrell Heifer calf. I'll get a pic in a day or two. blaze faced calf out of a Momentum/Angus 4 yr old.

I will know within the hour how the first one is. Have one on the way as I write this. I've honestly never been as excited to see a set in a long while. I studied that bull hard in Denver. He's my kind. I also hold Grant in the highest regards as a great cattle breeder. Can't wait.
P.S. I had to leave the calving pen to give her a chance otherwise I'd be bugging her.
To be continued........

Now you have me excited. I used 40 shots last spring and waiting for them to get here. Should have some any day now. We used him on every kind we have.

If I did this right here are the class breaks for all breeds in the steer show. You have to search breed and class you want but their all there. Didn't spend the time to count but theirs a pile of fats. They also have a link to results which list the top 10 per class.

AJ we used the Detour bull here and just loved the cattle. Those heifers are going to calve this week and I'm really impressed with their udders as for now. They are on the smaller end of of our breeds but are built so good that I'm really excited to see what they have. Reds don't typically live up here in the altitude. But we had no problem with them. Not one case of high altitude disease in that set. I'm pretty sure I'll go back to him this spring.

Only other thing I would add is, walk around and study things others do. Ask questions if you can and make sure you know when your class is and when check in is. CW is right have fun and learn.

The Big Show / Re: NWSS Display Bull Reports and Thoughts
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:44:49 PM »
I wasn't able to go, honestly I didn't want to, but here's the report I got from a few diffent people.   Fur trader was a stud  big stout up off the ground breeding bull that maybe was a touch straight upfront. The best quote I got on him was "a true breeding bull with a great look". Good As It Gets was very impressive from a "look" standpoint. Great rib muscle and profile but still plenty small. Blue Goose was Matts best bull. The Dr's bulls was exteamly impressive and most defiantly got the best report back to me. I'd say in my deal I'll use a little of FT and Duellos bull. But it won't be much as I have a hard time useing any yearling. Again that's what I was told by people I trust. Crowd was down a bit and weather was a little tough on Friday.
