The Big Show / Re: Here comes the fallout from the clone.
« on: August 30, 2010, 03:10:02 PM »
Show hiefer;  you wrote "As far as the "management" question cloning would actually be a very interesting and useful tool... take a group of 20 clones, give each exhibitor a calf, then in 10 months have a show. May the best manager win.....  kinda like that idea myself! Oh, and ask the exhibitors questions about their calf.... if the exhibitor actually cared for the calf, they should have no trouble answering questions about when, how much, and what they fed.  Yep, I think I might be on to something!"

I am pretty sure in your example, that the Faber's still would win.  They can flat get one ready...

not so sure about that mooch, my cousin has been showing dairy heifers for years and tells me that clones have been shown at the World Dairy Expo for years and that show gets bigger every year.  Its no big deal to them.

why don't they breed.....are they missing pieces, so to speak?  Or are the pieces that are there no functional?

I like the Brooklyn construction worker who says "Fugedaboutit!"  (I may not be spelling that right.)

this may be a dumb question, but why don't Charolais have problems with it?

I can't help but speak up here...aren't most of the successful show steers and many heifers produced from semen out of cloned bulls?  I imagine if we figured it out about 90% of you are showing an animal that benefited from clonning technology somewhere in the past.  I for one want to have this technology available to me in the future if I ever have a "great one".
You can't say the technology is kinda okay in one area and not another...you either support it or you don't.

Gus is right, I had that very thing happen.  Made a mummy and could not get it out of the cow.  Ended up culling her when all I wanted to do was get rid of the pregnancy.....big mistake.

I have had several and they were nice calves with good dispositions but in my herd, the moms seem to have more to do with that than the sires.

Good for you....more people need to speak up in favor of agriculture.  There are certainly enough speaking out against it.

The Big Show / price of semen
« on: August 18, 2010, 10:43:19 PM »
What is the highest priced beef semen out there?  I recently heard of a bucking bull unit of semen that sold for $20,000....is that possible?  For one straw?  How could you afford to use that in A.I.?
