The Big Show / ? for the Shorthorn Experts.
« on: March 25, 2014, 09:11:35 PM »
What bull or bulls are at the top of the breed for marbling?  Birthweight needs to be reasonable (less than 95), docility needs to be excellent, moderate growth, capable of siring a high percentage of prime calves (choice is not good enough to qualify).  A more terminal animal, maternal traits would be nice but not necessary.  Ideas?

I'm interested in buying a few straws of him.  Does anyone know if there is some available?

Thanks for any info.

The Big Show / Best type of breed, or animal to use as a milk cow?
« on: July 01, 2012, 02:59:13 PM »
I've been throwing around the idea of buying a heifer or goat to use as a animal to supply drinking milk for my family ( we had a milk cow when I was a kid, but all I remember is she was reddish brown).  Any suggestions as far as what breed of bovine or goat would be best.  I know zero about goats (never had one, so am leaning toward bovine).

Thanks for any suggestions

The Big Show / Need a ride for a couple pairs.

Need a ride for a couple pairs, they are presently located in Enderlin North Dakota and need to be hauled to Northeast Missouri ( or could meet in IL or anywhere in Missouri - not interested in meeting in Iowa).  Will pay reasonable rate.  Thanks for any ideas or advice!

The Big Show / Favorite Breeds?
« on: August 11, 2011, 09:49:07 PM »
What is your favorite breed of cattle.  List one breed and the reasons why you like this one the best, also list a couple bulls of that breed that you think alot of.   More breeds the better, I haven't heard anything about beefmasters, gelbvieh and  very little about longhorns on here to name a few.  So I was just curious where peoples loyalties were and why, some people are obvious and others not so much.  ;)

The Big Show / Animal Names?
« on: July 31, 2011, 09:21:08 AM »
What goes into naming an animal?  Some of the names I would think would be how the animal is expected to perform but others seem to be unrelated to performance.  Is there reasons, or just trying to find a cool name that is unusual and stands out?  There seems to be alot of unusual names of animals out there right now what are some that really stand out to you all.  Example Indian Outlaw, Hard Core, Who's Who, Prophecy, Sun Seeker ..............................................   8)

The Big Show / The cost of Oil?
« on: July 25, 2011, 04:58:18 PM »

Here is a link to a trailer of a new film about biofuels and oil, I have seen the film and it made me think about alot of different things that are all associated with oil and what it is really costing us.  I was hoping to get the whole video posted but no such luck.  Comments about biofuels and oil?

The Big Show / Question
« on: July 12, 2011, 09:47:18 PM »
Cows having backwards calves, is this genetic at all?  Does it seem like the same cows keep having backwards calves maybe not every time, but every few years.  Just curious about others experiences with this and opinions.
