The Big Show / Mister recommendations
« on: June 04, 2020, 05:16:24 AM »
What's everyone's opinion of misters? What kind are the best? I remember at state fair seeing a mister that sprayed ice water out of a cooler. Would that be good for daily use?
Thanks!! And sorry for so many questions 😊

I thought I'd introduce my new show steer, Brantley. He is MAB/S4(Heat Wave) and was raised by Mr. Rick Frye. Any comments are appreciated!

The Big Show / Re: Melatonin\weight gain
« on: October 29, 2019, 05:16:04 PM »
I am not 100% sure on this, but I think that melatonin cuts down on daily gain. He roughly needs to gain 2.2 lbs per day to get to 1300 lbs I think. You should probably consult someone who knows and see if you need to be pushing him harder instead of using melatonin. Also since its getting into winter, you should grow plenty of hair as long a you are keeping his hide clean and well conditioned. You might also want check out the podcast that Ferris Simon is doing called Chute Side. He has a recent episode covering winter hair care.

The Big Show / Bedding alternative
« on: October 29, 2019, 05:01:24 PM »
Hello everyone,
I am looking for a kind of mat to put down instead of bedding at jackpots. My point is to keep the cattle comfortable and clean while also being able to get in and out quickly. I am pretty sure that I saw someone using synthetic grass at one show. What are y'alls thoughts?

If someone wouldn't mind sharing the dimensions on an upright fan stand from Sullivan, I would really appreciate it!

Also if someone has the dimensions for the upright fan stand, that would be really helpful.

Hey, if anyone has one of these A frame fan stands could I please have the measurement of the circled piece on the picture? I am building my own and forgot to measure this piece on the stand that I borrowed.
Thanks so much in advance!!

The Big Show / Re: Stall layout/ where to hang fans?

Jacob, thanks so much for the response!
I am just wondering where to hang the fans at home for best air circulation and cooling. Also how wet do you get the bedding?

The Big Show / Stall layout/ where to hang fans?
« on: April 24, 2019, 03:51:13 PM »
I was wondering what everyone's stall layouts look like. I have three 24" Sullivan turbo fans and wanted to know where to hang them and what kind of stands/ brackets that y'all like to use? This would only be for one steer.
I also wanted to know how to keep the shavings from blowing away. I am using 1 fan right now and am using medium cedar shavings, but a lot of them blow away.
Thanks so much!!

Do y'all think that this will resolve some with more trims or is it a structural issue? Also are there any supplements that will help?

Tyrone Hullinger, Harris MO.  Not sure what he has now but many years ago the road to his place was always hot with "steer trader" traffic

I could not find anything about his cattle online. Do you know if he still does sales?
