The Big Show / First flush- JT Daisy 99K
« on: August 06, 2015, 09:07:01 AM »
Nothing more exciting as a vet student than completing my first embryo flush! And it was very successful too! JT Daisy 99K (pictured) had twins in March at 15 years old, and her breeders asked me if we could try and flush her and purchased a flush from her current owner. Well the old girl certainly impressed us, she ovulated 17 eggs! Produced 9 freezable embryos, 4 unfertilized, and 4 dead ones.

Embryos are sired by Saskvalley Ramrod 155R. Definitely looking forward to implanting these next spring and seeing the calves at Poplar Park Farm here in Manitoba, Canada.

We experimented with embryo transfer for the first time last spring, put in 10 embryos that resulted in 7 pregnancies. 6 calves on the ground so far with 1 girl still holding onto hers.

These are 4 full sibs sired by Saskvalley Primo and out Prairie Lane Sparkle. 3 heifers, 1 bull. All born within a week, Feb 6 - Feb 12.

Looking forward to watching these critters grow and develop, really liking them already!

First 3 are the heifers, 4th is the bull.

The Big Show / Young cow letting any calf suck
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:10:11 AM »
Has anybody ever had any luck in teaching a cow to not let calves that aren't hers suck? I have a 3 year old PB Shorthorn that will let anything suck, she had 4 going at once last night. She has lots of milk and her calf seems to be doing good again this year, but its something I'd like to get her to quit!

Other than keeping her and her calf in a pen by themselves, which is impractical with my summer grazing rotations, I don't know if there's much I can do about? Maybe she'll grow out of it?

Any results from yesterdays sale?  I wasn't able to make it. (quite disappointed too seeing as it was only ~10 miles from where I am!)
Great looking set of bulls overall.  Really liked lots 17, 29, 39, 40, 43, and 53.
