So for the purpose of producing Char Show heifers, what would be your breeding recommendations? We plan on flushing her this spring. We have access to IVF, Im still undecided on rather I like it better than conventional flushing or not but its certainly an option.

Yes we have started the paper work to get her transferred. Shes bred to a bull called SCC Prince I believe. I wasnt able to find any info online about him, but the breeder told me they have used him on their heifers with great success. I think he came from, Schmidt Cattle Co in Nebraska. I dont have a registration number on him currently.

Sorry guys I havent checked for a couple days! This is the heifers registration number: F1223370

I attached a picture of her. I bought her out of the Western Elite Sale in Denver.  Shes bred to a bull named Prince.

Like I said Im very new to the Char business so I value your input!

I just recently bought a purebred char female. Just wondering what the pros and cons are between these bulls they seem to be the most popular to produce purebred calves. Im also wondering if outsider is really worth the 500+ per straw.

Thanks in advance.

Its 10cc a dose and we have only been giving the cattle a dose every two weeks and then when we go to the shows as needed.

They also sell 500cc and 250cc bottles the gallon jugs are more for the cow calf operations that have thousands of head.

At the math we did if you buy the smallest bottle it ends up costing about $2.50 a dose so $5 a month if youre just maintaining. Its extremely cost effective.

Has anyone ever heard of cattle active? It is a drench supplement that cow calf producers use to put extra pounds on calves and prevent sickness. We have used it in our cow calf operation with great success.

Do you think that this product has a place in the show world? We have used it on our show string this year and have seen some weight gain benefits however the best thing it does is help cattle stay on feed and water on the road at a show. We had a steer that wouldn't drink we have him a dose of cattle active (orally) and within minutes he drank 8 gallons. We have repeated the test with other calves and have had success every time.

What are your thoughts as far as adapting this product to fit the show world.

Feel free to private message me or post back if you have any intrest. I'm good friends with an owner of the company and we are trying to gauge interest!!

Well in the fall we might break 15 head of calves at a time but during the show season only about 5.

I have recently acquired an older 36X36 tin barn. Its insulated but other than that completely bare with no concrete floor or anything. What are everyone's thoughts on how to then this into a nice showbarn. Ideas on implementing coolers, washracks, fans, tie areas, any ideas really! Thanks in advance!!

He had a significantly smaller foot than the clones did, however he was a lot smoother over all and had a way better shoulder. I think thats one of the trade offs you are going to run into.

I saw royal blend. He was good but not 25K for a quarter of him good. Italian Stallion was by far the best bull there in my opinion awesome fronted not bad in his shoulder and most importantly out of a great donor cow. For being a MAB I thought he was very good shouldered and correct and like I say I will breed to him because of predictability of his momma. I don't know why anyone thinks General Lee is a wreck Structurally he points north and south on all four feet and I watched him walk in two days and he didn't miss a step plus he is a two year old a lot of range bulls step short when they get to be that big.

What is the deal with this bull? I saw on CW sales that they were having a semen auction on him. So did he die or is he not producing semen anymore, or is the demand so great that they just cant fill orders? If anyone has any information on this I would appreciate it! Thanks.
