The Big Show / My experience with Champion Show Stock
« on: December 27, 2012, 03:24:11 PM »
After my pig breeder told me he preferred Glide over InMotion and other products of the like, I ordered a 3/4 lb deal of the stuff from Champion Show Stock. After about a week of no confirmations or shipping info I recieved a personal letter from Jordan Leatherman saying they had ran into some confusion in the warehouse and apologized for the delay. He said he had upgraded my order to the 2 lb container and overnighted it.
I just want to say that these guys know how to do business! Thye recognized their mistake and made up for it. After contemplating using juiced at my next shows over firewater and showshake because of the price, my experience with them has made up my mind. They probably lost money on this order, but with the good word of mouth they get from me and my further purchases they will make it up. What other company do you get this kind of service from?

Thats how you do business!!!
Thanks Jordan!

The Big Show / Re: Why more bone?
« on: August 09, 2012, 11:34:14 PM »
What I have noticed on some of these black cattle that needs changed some how is hind legs are to straight ,no flex ,and to small feet ...When they pull all that black leg hair up it make those back feet way out of portion and balance  ....IMO

The Charolais catttle or crosses have gained popularity because of the extra bone ,flex ,and solid foundation that there on.....They have there problems also but gives you some more options to use ....

I agree, I feel that a lot of these clubby calves end up with little bitty feet that begin to suffer when you started putting all that weight on them. That probably has something to do with it also, when we get these calves so stout and massive you need that big boned frame to keep him sound. But, that's just my opinion.

I think y'all may be missing the point, then again I could be wrong. To me, it would seem like big bone in market cattle would be a desirable characteristic from a carcass standpoint. It's really simple, the more surface area of bone, the more surface area of meat. Think about it, which are you gonna be able to get more meat on, a scronny roping calf or a big boned show calf?


please provide evidence.  you've provided two extremes.  please provide bone to meat ratio's.

"Correlations calculated over-all breed crosses indicated that cannon bone size scores were positively correlated (P<.01) with birth weight, 200-day weaning weight, feedlot ADG and slaugther weight (range, .21 to .60). Cannon bone size was positively correlated (P<.01) with cutability and retail product percentages (range, .25 to .42), but negatively correlated with longissimus marbling score, quality grade and carcass fat percentage (range, -.18 to -.39). Cannon bone size was also positively correlated (P<.01) with carcass bone percentage (range, .15 to .31). Pooled within breed cross correlations were considerably lower than correlations calculated over-all breed crosses. "
