To me Cerveza is the most under rated female maker around for club calf production.

I think the point has been missed for the most part. I am old , but yet i can recall most everything a judge said about how I did , or about a certain steer or heifer some 40 years later. Why because i respected their opinion because they were respected people from the industry i hoped to be a part of some day, and no i don't mean the show industry. As the new "old" generation we should take upon our selves to try and save what ever little bit of respect remains in that setting. Not everybody is whining about their kid getting beat when they bring stuff like this up. No i don't have a pony in this race , but I did hear from quite a few that this all did take place. I don't think teaching kids respect for each other ,their efforts , or the industry is to much to ask. And for the record I don't think liking Iowa or Iowa State should be a determining factor in showmanship.

I have read your post 5 times, and have actually learned a couple things from it.  Maybe I should say that I have been enlightened to a different way of thinking.  You sound like a wise "old" man.

What I don't understand is what your take is on the thread.  Are you saying that this judge needs to be respected because he is the judge, or are you saying the judge needs to respect the industry and not do what he has done?

The judge needs to show respect to the exhibitors and families whether it's a small county fair or not. Telling a group of children they are excused from a showmanship class because of a college football affiliation , to me shows a lack of respect to them and the commitment they and their families make to a year long project. Not to mention having a phone out doing snap chats or whatever during a heifer class.

The Big Show / Re: Walks Alone Calving help

Sounds like everything is fine. In our experience with WA, never had any problems on cows. Calving dates are only estimates not facts, sex of calf ,  genetics and alot of other things could have effect on the actual calving date. I have been doing this along time and never induced anything ,and especially not an old cow. Just keep monitoring her close like you are and you should be fine.

I thought I was probably the only one who ever did this! 30 years ago,giant fullblood Simmi cow . Luckily she was laying down and didn't jump up right away. Went back in up to my shoulder ,fished around for 5 minutes or so , seemed like an eternity. all the sudden my hand found it laying on the bottom. Just married a little while then, it gets your blood pumping!

We are getting a ton interest and positive feedback from your area on this new bull. Proven genetic package and should throw some baldies, smokes and color with power and look.

As far as I know, Devons are a fairly large British breed that has been around for centuries and there is no reason to change it into a large boned animal of another colour as many breeds have been 'morphed' in the USA.

Not all cattle must look like 'clubby' show calves, if you are making a profit, good for you, if not, change your business model!

Those females make good cows.  But you have to realize there is a new normal on prices due to market prices now, money from O&G that burns a hole in pockets, etc.

And now corn too.

Why is it a good thing if simmi's dont have leather?

Duh , because Bill Clinton instated a little know law that all cattle are to become completely Angus appearing whether they are purebred or crossbred by 2020. In this age of homogeneous equality, breed characteristics need to be killed off so no particular breed has any identity or genetic advantage over any other. Conspiracy theorists are of the belief that TH was introduced by the government to kill off Shorthorns and Club Calf bred cattle because they will never be able to comply.

If a RA x SH cow had a 130# bull calf and it hipped locked and she died , by a windmill 3 miles from the house, and coyotes ate them both before anybody knew . Did it ever really happen?

Thus the reason DO became so widespread popular within the breed,he breeds nearly identical to a high caliber angus bull and may be why this works .

He is not a bad calf by any stretch. In a county with a simmi class he would probably be pretty competitive. He is alot better than 90% if the calves you'll see at most county fairs and would compete in a carcass contest.
