Nice set. Bullseye seems to really be getting it done.

We sent a bull out to Hawkeye earlier this year to be collected.  We were treated very well, our bull was treated and managed as good or better than we could have done.  I would be hard-pressed to use another.  Their quality standards are very high and unless you would specify differently, it's all at or above industry standards.  Nichols looks very impressive and they list all of the bulls housed at their facility on their website.

The Big Show / Best Cattle Buys on the cheap.
« on: October 07, 2020, 12:28:24 PM »
Quite a few years ago now a friend flushed a really good Ali/Kadabra/Total Play cow to Who da Man. They sold all of the bulls off and most of the heifers, one of those back to Winegardner and she was the Champion Chi in 2012. The following year the put the last heifer calf through an online sale, she was green and very up headed (crazy). It did not sell for the floor bid of $1000, so they offered it to us for $700. She has found her way to being a donor, averages 25 eggs a flush and has been a foundation cow in our herd. One picture is from her video and the other a recent one after being flushed all summer.

The Big Show / Re: Can We Get Some "STEER" In Steerplanet
« on: October 06, 2020, 07:20:03 PM »
Medium Rare, we had a really nice Wynne in Doubt calf and as we weaned him and put him over on to full feed he fell apart.  Really looks more Angus as he matures and has no chest floor. He is growing well and will finish nice as a beef steer, but not as a show steer.  Tons of hair though, used on a smaller framed power cow I think he would be great.  Just my observations.

The Big Show / Re: Anyone ever successfully IVF'd a cystic donor?
« on: September 15, 2020, 08:08:35 PM »
We have one at Donor Solutions now and they found a cyst last time she was set up and would not flush her.  They set her back up and are breeding her now for collection next week.  They said the cyst was gone and they won't try if she is cystic at the time.  Limited experience with IVF if you're collecting her that way.

There is a ton of good information in that episode.  That's also the first time I've heard of the Dominant Follicle Removal, which allows the cow to produce a greater number of quality eggs.  I would not hesitate to send cows to him, seems to have a really good common sense approach to the whole thing.

The Big Show / Re: In your opinion, who is the best show calf producer?
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:44:39 AM »
Depends what part of country your in...
I think you are absolutely right.  Find someone near you that you can trust and learn from.  The good breeders always offer extra service after the sale, if they just load them and that is the last time you have any contact with them, they probably won't have the repeat business.  We have had very good luck with purchases from Winegardner, Jones Show Cattle and from Schroeder's, all fairly close to us and we know that we can call or text any time.  They can also find the good ones and/or have them available.

I agree, it is an investment and you just have to figure out what works best for you and your goals.  We use embryos a lot to protect our genetic investment, especially as a cow starts to age.

Why not embryos?  I think with just a few cows you could increase the quality of your genetics exponentially with buying embryos and putting them in.  Sell your steers and keep the good heifers.  Some low birthweight heifer safe embryos for your first timers would be good too.

Thanks. We have semen available on him already, stored at Hawkeye. Going to try and get him ready to picture and hopefully take to NAILE. Hes getting used on some really good cows, be interesting to see what he works on.

We got 5, 6-1 sexed embryos out of the deal. 2 deads and 16 unfertiles. Flushed her to Dual Threat conventional and froze 19, 2 unfertile an 8 dead. Pretty happy with that.

I'd have a vet check it, looks kind like a stray testicle.
