Does anyone have the highlights from their sale?

The Big Show / UPDATED: What type of cows to breed Monopoly to?
« on: January 04, 2018, 05:47:45 PM »
I havn't found any posts on here from the last 5 years about this topic, but you are still constantly seeing Monopoly calves come to the top at shows.  So that got me wondering what cows he is working best on these days?

The Big Show / Supplements that you swear by?
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:13:52 PM »
With the millions of supplements (powders, pastes and pellets) on the market by Sullivans (fresh and feminine, stretch, winning fill, keep n on, sure champ, juiced), Purina (ultra full, depth charge, fitter 35), Stand Alone, and countless others, it is often hard to sort through which ones are worth the money, while still being palatable.

Which ones do you find beneficial to feed on a daily basis, leading up to or during a show, or in certain circumstances that you find make a noticeable difference?

The Big Show / Best Stops to look at Sale Calves in KS, NE, SD?
« on: August 20, 2017, 11:03:52 AM »
I am going to be driving through Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota and am shopping for a show heifer for the coming year.  I am wondering where the best places to stop and look at top quality calves are.  I want to make sure I don't miss anyone.

The Big Show / Trailers: Eby vs Wilson
« on: June 15, 2017, 11:11:25 PM »
I am currently shopping for a new aluminum trailer, most likely a 16' Bumper pull. I have found two that I like the looks of and have heard good things about, an Eby and a Wilson. The prices are comparable so I'm wondering about the differences, in quality and durability, or any things that you'd change about either. Thanks in advance!

The Big Show / 1/2 Chute Styles
« on: May 04, 2017, 10:06:47 AM »
I am looking at buying a new chute and I saw Sullivans has their half chute that does not have a top or back part to it and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with these?  I was thinking that they would be nice since you don't have those extra bars getting in your way.  Does anyone feel that those bars are absolutely necessary?

The Big Show / Canadian Cluf Calf Semen Distributers
« on: March 14, 2017, 01:04:41 PM »
I am wondering who all in Canada is distributing club calf semen.  Whether it be a company, or an individual, I am having trouble locating a few different bulls that I know are approved for Canada.

The Big Show / Heifer keeps losing neck sweat nose band
« on: February 16, 2017, 02:36:56 PM »
I have a heifer that is wearing a Sullivan's black heat neck sweat, with a leather neck sweat over top. Within an hour in the pen, she has her nose band off.  Has anyone found any solutions to this?

The Big Show / Updated - Daily Hair Care Products
« on: January 16, 2017, 04:19:23 PM »
I have used a lot of different things for daily hair care products over the years, and I just wanted to see what other people use.  I have searched through this site, but havn't really found any posts from the last five years and just thought I would see if people are still trusting the same old Kleen Sheen, zoom bloom, vinegar, etc mixtures, or if they are using some new combinations. 

The Big Show / Heifer Calf Ride - Ohio to South Dakota
« on: October 27, 2016, 05:28:15 PM »
I am looking for a ride for a heifer calf from Eastern Ohio, to Mitchell, SD.

If you or anyone you know will be making this trip, I'd love to work out something

The Big Show / Breeder Map?
« on: August 25, 2016, 12:17:35 PM »
Does anyone know of a map or list that shows where most or all crossbred/clubby breeders are located.  Or even one that includes purebred breeders as well?  If not, I think this could be a really handy thing for someone to make!

The Big Show / Ears Forward in the Show Ring
« on: April 29, 2015, 09:20:48 PM »
So I know how to get my calf's ears forward in the show ring, but I find I'm constantly having to get at her, she won't keep them forward.  But I have seen people who manage to keep them forward the entire show, and I was wondering if you had any tips or tricks you were willing to share.

The Big Show / Terminal Shows, such as Denver
« on: January 20, 2015, 07:26:08 PM »
While in Denver, a parent explained to me how it, as a terminal show, works for lambs.  They explained that aside from the animals who qualify for the sale, the lambs are led directly from the ring to the truck, where the exhibitors receive market price.  Is this the case with steers as well?  I am curious as to what is the reasoning behind making it a mandatory terminal show?  I understand that if they qualified for the sale, they should have to sell it.  But if the exhibitor does NOT make the sale, why can't they take it home and try to sell it privately or make the sale at another show?

The Big Show / Cleaning combs
« on: August 22, 2014, 10:02:50 AM »
Anyone have any tips for cleaning all the glue and crud out of combs? I've decided to take on the task of cleaning all the show supplies.  Before you ask, yes, I am crazy.

The Big Show / Growing hair without the best facilities..
« on: April 29, 2014, 05:33:30 PM »
There was another topic that was saying it's best to just have cold and dark for growing hair.  My problem is, I only have a small barn (it's really more of a 10' by 15' shed) without doors, so I can't get it very dark or cold.  I slicked out my heifer, and am trying to grow back a nice, full coat.  I am currently rinsing with ice cold water two-three times a day (at 6am, 2pm and sometimes again at 8pm) until she gets a chill, then tying her in the "barn" with a fan until dusk.  Is there anything else I could be doing, or anything I should be doing differently?  I have heard many mixed reviews on whether or not to use oils and/or conditioners daily, any more opinions on this?
