The Big Show / Ways to tell straight front end from pics and videos
« on: August 03, 2014, 01:44:55 PM »
Is there any ways that you guys use to tell if a calf is straight in their shoulder design and in their knee? Looking at 400-600 pound calves sometimes for me can be a little tricky to tell weather or not by 1300 if they will buck over. I have heard that a few things to look for is the neck to come out of the shoulder at a higher point(up headed). A banana shape to the front leg. The last thing i heard is the calfs front hoof shoulder float when it reaches out for its next step. In this case what is the cut off point to where it doesn't reach out far enough that at 1300 it will be to straight. Also is there any trick to finding the point of the shoulder on some calves? For some its very easy to find the point and others(that seem to carry more condition)it can be difficult.

1). is this one straighter made? I have a hard time finding the point of her shoulder
2). this one looks like she is straight. am i right on this one
3). This calf i can find point very easy and i believe this one would get to straight

The Big Show / Clubby bull question
« on: July 06, 2014, 04:06:44 PM »
Im looking for a clubby bull who consistently sires offspring with the soundest back legs(i.e. tracks wide,stands square on hooves and not on the outer edge, flex in hock and set in pastern). What bulls have you used where you have seen a consistent pattern of them siring these characteristics in their offspring. A bull that comes to mind for me is unstoppable but i haven't seen enough of them in large numbers to know for sure.

Thanks  in advance

The Big Show / Cow rejecting calf
« on: February 28, 2012, 08:58:55 PM »
Is there anything that i could do to get the cow to accept her calf. She had it this morning and has totally neglected it. She kicks at it whenever it trys to nurse. The cow also showed no signs of having a calf today and there is no after birth to be found. Any ideas on how to get the cow to accept the calf? (this is not the cows first calf)
