If you contact Martsching I'm sure that he would visit with you about his results. I think that he was very satisfied. I think he said that they only implant number ones.

I know tat Martsching's use them. Brent said that they only put in number ones. I also know that they are growing which indicates success.

He's a WV product. Kalvig placed him. I thought you may have had a hand in getting him west.

I've been using Duff Hobart on a few of my better cows hoping for bull calves to make females with. Hoping for good uddered easy keeping females on down the road. Tired of the harder doing "performance" cattle!!

The Big Show / Re: AAOK feed ration help
« on: April 15, 2021, 09:23:53 AM »
I have used AAOK's ration for a long time and like it a lot for various reasons. Depending upon where you are located you may have to adjust the ration to your area and use feed stuffs that are readily available to you. You should be able to cut the quoted price easily by half and probably closer to 2/3s. Just buy a small batch cement mixer at your local farm supply sales company. I bought my current mixer at an Orchlens store for under $300.00, it works great for me. I use like seed totes for various ingredients, have a small hanging scale to measure out ingredients. Your kids will learn how to mix feed, discover there are no magic ingredients, be able to custom mix feeds for different stages and classes to cattle, for instance market steers verses breeding heifers. With the lessons learned and the costs savings I would gear up for making my own feed. All feed manufacturers are going to say right away that they can mix , or have one similar to what you are asking. They want to sell you that high priced feed!! Good luck. ::)

Most likely a clostridial issue. Call your vet.

I am 63 years old and have had cows since I was 9. the thing is I haven't figured anything out yet. It seems like to me that the epds are geared mostly for the packers and the feeders. I sell feeder calves. The most important numbers for me are $W and $EN within the Angus sire Summaries.
An interesting question though is Kit Pharo's. If you have 50,000lb pot loads of calves and the one has 600lb calves in it and the other is loaded with 450lb calves, which pot load would you rather receive the money for. Most years the 450lb pot load of calves will bring somewhere in the neighborhood of $15k to $20K more than the 600lb calves. Something to think about. ::)

The Big Show / Re: Weaning
« on: December 27, 2020, 09:48:35 AM »
90 days is my minimum age also and I have weaned several at that age through the years. If they are eating some feed ahead of that you won't notice much of delay in those calves. Competition from bigger calves will be as hard on them as anything else so fit you have a separate pen to sort a few smaller calves off with them they will respond to the extra care well.

It's been well over 20 years since we used melatonin and we trying to take the edge off of a couple of calves. You'll have to research what levels are necessary to help with hair growth. Good luck  :)

To give you a correct answer a person would need to know the concentration of the melatonin pills to be used.
