The Big Show / Pic New PB Simm bull Calf
« on: May 24, 2011, 03:14:24 PM »
Calf was born yesterday out of a PB Simmental cow and our herd bull. Usually hard to get a good pic with a calf, but boy this one was looking pretty good for day one and thought I should share. Lets just hope he continues to impress us like he did on day one.

The Big Show / Plugged Sheath or Faulty plug?
« on: May 18, 2011, 08:05:07 AM »
I bred a heifer this morning and noticed after breeding that some of the semen was above the plug in the straw? Wasn't very much maybe 1/4 or less.  I guess the plug could have been faulty as well since I did not notice any resistance when I pushed the plunger in? Anyone had this happen? Trying to decide if I should use another straw on her?

The Big Show / Story - Not Cattle Related
« on: October 06, 2009, 09:43:09 AM »
I rcv'd this story in an Email and Generally I would not post anything political, but this seems pretty logical to me? Then again everything logical seems to be out the window these days.


THIS IS A TRUE STORY

THE ANT  AND THE GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different....
Two Different Versions!  ................... Two Different  Morals!

OLD  VERSION: The  ant works hard in the withering heat all summer  long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The  grasshopper  thinks the ant  is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come  winter, the ant  is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper  has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL  OF THE STORY: Be  responsible for yourself


MODERN  VERSION:

The ant  works hard in the withering heat all summer  long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The  grasshopper  thinks the ant  is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come  winter, the shivering grasshopper  calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant  should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and  starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of  the shivering grasshopper  next to a video of the ant  in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.  America  is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth,  this poor grasshopper  is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit  the Frog appears on Oprah  with the grasshopper  and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

Acorn  stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group  singing, 'We shall overcome.'  Rev. Jeremiah Wright  then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's  sake.

Nancy Pelosi &  Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back  of the grasshopper,  and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant  to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC  drafts the Economic Equity &  Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the  beginning of the summer.

The  ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate  number of green bugs  and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is  confiscated by the Government  Green Czar.

The  story ends as we see the grasshopper  finishing up the last bits of the ants  food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's  old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it.

The  ant has  disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper  is found dead in a drug related incident and the  house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize  the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL  OF THE STORY:  Be  careful how you vote in 2010.

The Big Show / Heifer Escape Artist
« on: June 04, 2008, 08:57:06 AM »
Looking for some suggestions on how to keep a heifer on halter ? She will rub it off the back of her ears before you get out of the barn. We learned quickly that she always needs a necktie.
