The Big Show / Summer internship
« on: April 08, 2017, 03:21:07 PM »
We traditionally offer a summer internship working in the show barn. As luck would have it, the individual that we had selected this year cannot fulfill the internship. So now we are once again in search of someone to fill the position. The job includes halter breaking calves, daily care of our showstring, feeding, washing, blowing, as well as many other tasks associated with show cattle preparation. The position starts approximately May 1st and runs through mid August. If you are interested in this position send me a message and I will email you an application. Absolutely NO drugs!!!! RW

For some of you who have been on the "Planet" for an extended period, our friend "Cowboy" was in a bad 4 wheeler wreck and suffered several serious injuries. He was flown to a hospital in Kearney, NE. Please take a moment and say a prayer for him. RW

The Big Show / Our Red Angus bull
« on: January 14, 2015, 05:54:09 PM »
This is our Red Angus bull GCC Navigator 1233. For those of you who may remember a post by BTDT, aka Show Heifer, aka Jennifer Gardner who clearly stated that when we won the Iowa State Fair Red Angus show that it was a "put up deal" and that apparently I had paid off the judge. This is a picture of our bull winning Reserve Grand Champion Bull at the 2015 National Western Stock Show, where we competed against some of the top Red Angus from not only the United States but also Canada. This is posted just to remove any doubt from anyones mind of the quality of the bull. I was going to post this on the thread that she started but apparently after I defended myself on her posts with facts, the truth did not fit her goal of discrediting me and she pulled the post. Here is the bull, make up your own mind. RW

The Big Show / New Red Angus herd sire
« on: April 08, 2013, 10:22:35 PM »
Here is our newest herd sire, Red Blairs Cash 29Z. We purchased him in Blair Ag's Pursuit of Excellence bull sale a few days ago where he was the high selling yearling Red Angus bull. He is a Red Corner Creek Cash 2R son out of their now deceased 72K donor cow.

There has been quite a bit of stir in the breed about the results of the show in Denver this year, here is the nuts and bolts of the contraversy.In the 2013 National Red Angus show the National Champion bull was crowned, and now the rest of the story as they say....The bull is a certified carrier of OS. With as much emphasis as the national office has placed on genetic defect testing should this have happened? There was an "associate judge" in the ring judging the papers and EPD's all day long. There are currently no rules against showing "dirty" animals and he came from a very reputable breeder who did nothing wrong by exhibiting him. My question is this, should a know carrier of a fatal genetic defect be allowed to show in a breeding animal show and if so should he be considered for the champion drive? Let me know what you think.

The Big Show / Frame scores - how small is too small?
« on: February 06, 2012, 09:49:56 PM »
Today I saw some data on a pen of sale bulls that really concerned me. In the data were listed frame scores that were in my oppinion too small to be usable. Several of the bulls were 3.25 to 3.75 frame scores, keep in mind that these bulls are not bred to be low lines. I can't help but wonder how far we will go down in frame scores and try to market them as "moderate" before someone finally decides that - "Oh my gosh we went to far again!" and we start the trend back to larger framed cattle. Personally I like bigger cattle and 6+ frame score cattle don't bother me at all if they are good, but I have no use for a 3.25 frame score animal in my program. RW

I got a chance today to roughout a couple of our Walkerton 10W heifer calves that we are taking to Denver. They are both out of first calf heifers, if I posted them right the top heifer is an April and the bottom is a May. They are not "show heifer" fat and look a little shrunk out after being tied up in the barn all day, but I have been promising to post some pictures of some Walkerton calves for almost a year. Sorry about the picture quality, I was running out of daylight pretty fast tonight. RW

The Big Show / New Herdsire
« on: March 18, 2011, 07:47:02 AM »
We have recently purchased another new herdsire. Challenger 5X is now in the stud being collected and we will post pictures as soon as we get him home. Challenger's data - EPD's     BW   3.3    WW   59   YW   135    Milk   19    TM   49   ME   3   HPG    13   Stay 14    Marb.   0.11    YG   0.10   CW   68    REA   0.13   Fat   0.01.   Performance data -   BW   95#    WW   768#     YW   1663#    %IMF   2.70     REA   15.61     FAT 0.29. He ranks in the top 1% of the breed for WW, YW, TM, CW EPD's and is currently the #1 YW EPD in the breed. He should prove to be an excellent  power,growth and maternal bull. RW
