Here is a pic of the steer and his bad eye

The Big Show / Pink Eye
« on: September 13, 2020, 08:23:14 AM »
I have a steer that had pink eye this summer. I didn't catch it very early and it formed white over the eye. I did treat him with Draxin. His eye has gotten a lot better, but his eye is still cloudy. It has been probably 2 months since I first treated him. Will his eye always be cloudy? or is there a way I can get it cleared up? I can try and post a picture later. Any help would be appreciated!

Nice looking cattle. What ever you flush her to will probably turn out great!

I've been doing some studying on the red angus. I would love to see some of the off spring of this bull.

They look like a nice group of heifers. Maybe I have just had some bad experiences with Red Angus dispositions but with some of the ones I've been involved with I just don't get their popularity. A few years ago a neighbor had me take a group of shorthorn cows to put with 150 red angus steers that were spooking and going through some pretty good fences that had held everything before. They did quiet down when the cows didn't spook and run but they couldn't take any pressure. We have 18 purebred red angus recips here right now most came from a ranch setting but there are still 3 that jump up and run away whenever you go out to check which is several times a day in this weather. The black angus and simmie recips have settled right in. I had to help a neighbor pull a calf from a Red Angus and she was trying to kill us before we got the calf out. Maybe I am just getting old but I think there are some bloodlines that are plain nasty and to me disposition is important. Like the neighbors yearling bull that turned on us when we were loading him on a trailer last spring, then he tried to take the neighbor a few days later when he was herding him with a quad. I personally wouldn't want any after this year. I'm sure if you get the right bloodlines there would be fewer issues. That said crossed with Bonanza son you would probably get awesome cows.

Disposition I find is based more on the owner and how they handle there cattle.  We find that to many people around here don't spend enough time walking through there cows on foot or by horse and the only time they see there cattle is when they are in their truck, tractor, quad or side by side and then they are shocked that there cattle freak out when they try to handle them.  I personally like having the Red Angus because of their little bit of edgeness when they calve I consider it a maternal strength and it results in calves that are up right away and sucking.  We use to raise shorthorns and this wasn't the case some were good mothers and others were absolutely horrible added to the fact of inconsistent birth weights and calves that had no try and we had to make the decision to get out of that breed.

I like your point Scott. Human interaction is a lot of times over looked.

Has anyone heard the term "coon fronted" used by a judge? Would this be bad? good?
