Help / Anyone w/ experience w/ frozen hooves on valuable calves?
« on: November 25, 2015, 02:47:46 AM »
My situation is that we had a heifer calf born into a blizzard about five weeks ago. While otherwise healthy (she's nursing, alert, can hobble around reasonably well), her right rear hoof has never been right.

This morning when I was out with them, I was watching her real close -- and saw the first stages of what appears to be her shedding her hoof (it's always been swollen; today I saw two sores and some blood). nhac chuong mien phi

This heifer was well over half the reason we bought her mama ... and, so we'd like to do what we can to salvage the reproduction value of this little heifer. We're considering any and all options to get eggs out of her, fertilized and into recips.

My questions relate to things to look for, treatment protocols, etc. to get her old enough to either harvest her ovaries (to either freeze or to harvest immediately) ... or ... to get her past weaning to sexual maturity and try to flush her then.

I'm pretty sure that five weeks old isn't old enough to harvest the ovaries or to try an IVF procedure of some sort (but, I'd be happy to find out that I'm wrong), and so, I wouldn't mind help from anyone who's lived with a calf prior to, during and after the sloughing of the hoof. Treatment, management, etc.?

There just aren't that many people south of Kansas City with much in the way of practical expertise on managing a calf who lost a hoof from frostbite. Anyone from the frozen tundra care to help out?

Thanks for any help. Feel free to PM me if you'd rather take this offline.

PS -- I'm not looking for "shoot her" type comments. While that may be what we do, I'd like to look into other options first.  :)

The Big Show / Got my calves sold
« on: September 30, 2015, 11:33:55 PM »
I figured now was as good a time as any. The sale is a larger area barn and my first calves through a sale barn. The prices wasn't what I had hoped or used to figure my break evens back in May, but I got what little feed/mineral they ate paid for and didn't lose any calves, so I'm calling it a success! My eye was no good on my bigger calf but was close on the others. I sold 15 and they split into three groups.

9 black heifers ave. 778 at 1.77 lb Outsold heifers weighing 65 lbs lighter. Listed as med and large 1
5 black steers ave. 767 at 1.85 lb These sold within 2 cents of top of the market in their weight class. Listed as medium and large 1-2
1 black steer ave. 915 at 1.65 lb This calf obviously didn't match. He brought above the average of his weight class.

These calves received 3 lbs of commodity 14% daily and straight fescue pasture since May. mỹ phẩm luxury girl I guessed them, for what that's worth, that they weighed in the ballpark of 500 or so then, and gained in the vicinity of 2.3 lbs a day, if I figured/remember correctly.

I was commended on my cattle during the sale, so that made me feel pretty good. It's odd seeing them go through. Kind of sad to see them go. I've got babies hitting the ground now though, so here we go again. Hopefully I'll be where I can keep my heifers this time.

Swine Chat / Sick pregnant pigs
« on: September 18, 2015, 04:48:12 AM »
I thought I posted before but I don't think it showed up. I have 5 pregnant pigs that are all due at the end of this month. Today they stopped eating and started vomiting. They are free range but did not leave the house, which they do every other day. I thought it could be food but one of my workers said in his village his wifes pigs got sick like mine and were also pregnant and died in 2days which had me worried. tc dụng của quả c ch
I called the local "vet" (not sure how much training he has but this is rural cambodia so he has needles and antiobotics so we call him a vet). The vet said he could not come because another owner of pregnant pigs just called him. I am not sure it only gets pregnant pigs by my staff said they have only head of it killing pregnant pigs. No one seems to know what it is and they say this is the first time they have seen this problem. The pigs did have bumps on their skin starting a week ago but it happend right after I put down new rice husks for bedding so I thougt and still think it was ant bites. They were eating normally and moving like normal until today. They do not feel hot and actually felt cooler than normal but I guessed that was because they stayed out of the sun today and just layed down all day. There is no good vet I can get to and I have no idea what disease would make them all get sick on the same day, no fever, but vomiting, and laying down. I didn't see any go but yesterday their stool was normal. Any help would be good as the info I am getting from the local farmers is that some disease is killing pregnant sows shortly after they get it?

Thanks for any help

Cattle Website Design & Marketing / shipping calves two days early?
« on: September 11, 2015, 04:55:40 AM »
I need to make a decision, and would like you guys that see this, or do it yourselves, help in my info gathering.

Calves have had two rounds, pinkeye, fly tags, wormed, 3 lbs of commodity 14% since May while on straight fescue pasture. Knife cut.

Nine heifers and six steers weighing 600 ish to 750 ish. (My eye is not too good and I've looked at them daily for...a while)

option 1

Sell at local barn, prices twenty cents back or more, depending. 4% or so commission. Arrive at sale the morning of regular weekly sale.(quả c ch)

option 2

Bigger barn, two hours distant. Sale will be two mornings following the morning of shipment. Supposedly, hopefully, will be hay'd, fed, and watered. Sell first on sale day. Straight $14/hd commission. This will be a pre vac sale.

Concerns are mostly about the shrink, and if they would have time to get it back, or at least some of it. I'm unsure as to if it would be worth it to send them to the big barn if the shrink will eat up the difference in price and commission difference.

Cattle Website Design & Marketing / Where to sale bred heifers?
« on: September 04, 2015, 02:33:08 AM »
I have a group of 30 black angus heifers that I am going to A.I. in December. Where is the best place to sell a group of this size? I dont think superior will sell a group of 30 since its not a truck load, didn't know what my other options are. (quả c ch)
These are nice fancy heifers never been off the farm that will fit in anyone's program.

The Big Show / AI protocol for Bos Indicus cattle
« on: August 21, 2015, 02:46:17 AM »
It has been 3 or 4 years since I last used AI, I am interested in giving it another go this year. I notice that in some of the new AI literature there is a new protocol for Bos Indicus cattle, this protocol is just on the sheet that talks about cows, there isn't one on the sheet for heifers. luxury girl Is there a different protocol for heifers? Has anyone used this protocol. Of the cows I plan on servicing this year about half of them range from 1/2 to full beefmaster. Is there a protocol that I can use for all the cattle? Thanks for any input!

Help / Tell me about longhorn cross cattle
« on: July 16, 2015, 04:13:42 AM »
Got a few questions for you more experienced cattlemen. With the price of longhorn females being so much lower than other breeds, what is the major disadvantages of purchasing longhorn cows that are bred to angus bulls or buying solid cows and breeding them to black bulls? (luxurygirl vietnam)
What will the resulting calves look like? Will they have a destinct look that will get them docked at sale bar? Also, I saw some 5/8 gerts 3/8 longhorn mommas the other day. How would they do crossed to char for sale barn? Purpose of my calves are straight to sale barn.

The Big Show / Family milk cow sic?
« on: July 13, 2015, 01:53:29 AM »
Hello

This is the second year that I have been milking a (Sharley)? cow that I raised from a calf.

last year during her first milking I wanted to change her calving date to the fall since it was just too hot to be hand milking in the summer. well after 4 months she got to where she was only giving about a gallon per milking and then the bull jumped the fence and that was that . this year I havent been able to get more than about 10# per and am thinking that mabey it just me and am not a fast enough milker to get her to produce more? Last year at 2 months milking i got 2+ gallons per. this year only about 10#s per.

what could be different? (best ringtones download)

Also for the last week she has a little nasal discharge and dry coughing. also a been lose whe she lifts her tail. she still is eating well but seems like she is a little stiff when coming to the barn for milking and not as insistent about wanting to be milked? what should I do?

Warren from central fl.
