The Big Show / Fulnky Back Legs?
« on: March 14, 2008, 08:52:31 AM »
We had a heifer calf born this a.m. sired by Sunseeker and out of a Monsoon cow (Maine).  She is up and toddling around but walks on her back hooves + pasterns.  Like really really flat footed, but on inspection, there is not fliexibility in the pastern joint so it seems the joint is fused so that she will always walk on the part of the leg including the hoof and pastern.
Is this a type of TH? 
Thanks.

The Big Show / Developing a show bull
« on: February 04, 2008, 08:31:13 AM »
We are hoping to raise a breeding bull that will be competitve in Denver next Jan. or at least look good!

The bulls we saw there this year (Limousin) were weighing 1400 lbs. at 11 monthes of age, had huge scrotal circumferences for that age ((upper 30's, even 40) and had wonderful long hair.

How do you get the bulls to be that big at that young age?  Do we need to shut the calf as soon as he can eat creep and feed the dickens out  him  while letting him stay on the cow or can we wait until weaning time to shut him and feed him heavily?  Also, how much "fudging" of the birthdates are there at large national shows like this?

Thanks for whatever help you can give me!
