The Big Show / Re: Multi-Min 90 Questions

I've been using it for several years on my cowherd for AI/ET. I give it to them one month before breeding. I think it does improve heats and conception, but I can't say for certain but I will continue using it.

I also give it to calves that are weak at birth along with a B-complex shot.

What has been everyone's experience using virgin heifers as receipts?

DLZ

None, I wouldn't put an embryo in a heifer. I don't implant embryos in my cows until they are 4.

There is no drought that has not broken, ever!

Hang in there, next year will be better.

I used the same opportunity in 2009 to take the knife to my herd, the quality is noticeably better as a result.

I live in south Texas, I've been wishing for that for three years....

The Big Show / Re: Any thoughts on Red Simmental Bulls out there
« on: August 25, 2013, 03:36:27 PM »
We've used Amigo, they are just so so. Good calving ease, but we sure do not like what he did to the udder on the heifer. Her dam has the most perfect udder (she is a Hummer), and the Amigo calf has really long nipples that are big. She is nursing her first calf this year, and really sucking down on weight and her calf is little. So, I do not think we will use him again. Bull calves seem to lack power for us also.
Like an earlier poster said, it depends on what your goals are. Red Iron calves look good, and we like the Beef Maker calves. We bred our angus heifers to Beef maker, we will see in about 3 weeks how they look. I really like the looks of LN's bull, Yukon. I am eagerly looking forward to some pictures soon. Same with Homeboy.

I've heard reports from other breeders on Yukon's calves born this past thing and they said they came small and took off like weeds growing. I haven't seen any personally, but my Yukon calves will be here in a couple weeks!

This one's rampant. I've been able to avoid all the other defects but finally got stung by this one. I have a bull sale coming up in December so I'll be pulling hair as soon as that test is commercially available.

He should work really well on exotic females. I used him on SimAngus heifers last year and they all came easy. The calves off of the SimAngus heifers weren't tremendous, but they were smaller framed females out of a CE bull as well.

I used Brilliance on a handful of Simmental cows I have and those were some dang nice calves. Worked really well.

Oh really?... That's interesting. Good to know. Not that I was thinking about using any red bulls any time soon. But I like to know that kind of stuff.

From the dam's side, I'm guessing? 701T isn't a spotter, is he?

I'm almost certain it came from the dam's side.

Be careful with Redestined, he has the spotting gene. I'm developing some bulls sired by him at my facility and they are really nice.

The Big Show / Re: Breeding advice for my Simm heifer.......

My Top Grade calves have grown out very nicely, he may end up as my heaviest sire group or second. There's only a couple duds in the entire group and I blame the cow more than I do Top Grade. I used him again and with how things are going so far I foresee still using him.

The Big Show / Re: Synovex implants- what's the story?
« on: March 18, 2013, 09:51:30 AM »
I asked about them from my supplier a month ago and he said something along the lines of the plant has shut down and no one knows when production will resume.

I've been using Compudose-C as a substitute but would rather use Synovex-C.

I've used Multi Min or Min Max for several years now and it's a set part of our pre-breeding program now. I give Multi Min one month prior to breeding along with a vitamin ADE, deworming and any pre-breeding vaccinations.

I have calves that were born in September and October. I'm very pleased with mine. They are sound, have good dispositions, and birth weights ranged from 60-90 lbs. I didn't use him on heifers but I think he should be ok for heifers.

The only negative I have to say right now is he doesn't appear to add any body depth to his calves. But overall I am very pleased with mine.

Saw some yearling bulls in the yards by him and some were down right dogs.

As in?

They were pretty bad. Overall I thought the Upgrades looked best in the yards.

I saw him in Denver. Looked awesome. The cattle up on the hill by him looked pretty good too.
