The Big Show / When is the latest you would castrate a show steer?
« on: September 21, 2014, 02:09:22 PM »
How late would you cut or band a bull and still expect him to be a good show steer?

The Big Show / Colostrum Replacer & other calving supplies
« on: January 06, 2014, 08:57:38 AM »
What is the best colostrum replacer available?    Needing to order calving supplies and not seeing the kind we have used in the past.

Ideally I like to use colostrum collected from one of our own cows but calving season has not started and I have nothing in the freezer so I feel like I need a commercial replacer. 

Also what else are 'must haves'?    Does anyone use the oral vaccines on newborns ? If so what kind?

The Big Show / Showmanship scramble & courtesy to other exhibitors
« on: July 16, 2013, 08:46:03 PM »
We recently attended and participated at a show.  My showman made the first cut and was going back into the ring for semi finals.  She was near the front of the line and the kids around her were calmly making their way into the ring.  One overzealous showman came out of nowhere from behind and pushed her way thru the gate, knocking my showman into the fence almost knocking her down, and banging our heifer around in her attempt to be first in. I'm not sure what other casualties there were before she blew passed the three or four ahead of us.    Seems to me like it has become a mad scramble to be the first into the showmanship ring.  I understand why everyone wants to be in the right place but I'm concerned about the lack of respect for other exhibitors - both in covering up and shoving passed them like we experienced.    Lucky for us, my showman was calm and got herself collected and made it into the ring.

Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be  more of this?

The Big Show / Extreme Heat
« on: July 19, 2012, 09:35:39 PM »
How is everyone dealing with the extreme heat?  Keeping calves eating? Keeping them cool without cooler room?

The Big Show / Keeping a halter on- Suggestions?
« on: February 16, 2012, 07:43:08 PM »
How do you keep a halter on a calf who has learned how to slip/rub it off.   She's pretty fast about it too.  We've tried tying twine to the cheeks and under her jaw but she can slip even that off.  The only way we can keep her tied is with a neck rope.   Otherwise she is a very gentle heifer, just can't keep the halter on her.   

I have just heard that one of our own, Herefordfootball (Chris Cummings), lost his battle with cancer last night.    He was 19.   More info to follow as available.

The Big Show / Liveauction.tv & Jr. Nationals
« on: June 24, 2010, 02:04:41 PM »
Are the junior national shows being aired live on liveauctiontv?    I wanted to see if I could watch some of the Maine show today.   It shows up as aired/online there but when I clicked, there was no video, just the jr. national logo.    Am I not doing something that I need to do to see it (the most likely scenario).   Or are they only airing certain segments.  If the later is true, then where could I find a schedule so I'd know when it would be online?   

I also want to thank Brad & co. in advance for providing this service.   It's great to be able to see bits of the other junior nationals.   It also is cool to be able to tell the usual fan club (grandparents) that they can watch online because they won't be attending this year.

The Big Show / Mud balls

The Big Show / Calving 101
« on: February 09, 2010, 01:53:02 PM »
I was just reading some of the posts in another thread and made me think ..    What does everyone do when you have a new calf?
Dip navals?  Vaccinate?  Other??  tag? tattoo?  weigh?   

In our operation, less has always seemed to be more.   We wait until the calf gets up & nurses before we do anything.   We tag and weigh, that's it.    There have been years where a scour problem might have us giving a vaccine to the calf but that is not the usual.    If the calf doesn't nurse within a reasonable amount of time, we tube with colostrx.     Depending on weather, if the cow isn't getting the calf dry quick enough, it will go into the hotbox to dry off & warm up.     

Our vet was telling me that we might think about giving a half dose of blackleg vaccine for any calf we have to  supplement or give colostrx to.
