Fair cattle is having their steer sale oct 12th on breedersworld. That might be the best chance yet to see lucky calves. I loved him in denver and wondered why he got no traction. He looks pretty good as a mature also. They are on facebook.

He gone. They sent him to kill after the third positive test. Bull was a good producer and they had plenty of inventory. Might as well sell the semen when there is still a market for it and the bull is still relevent.

She seems to be doing a good job!  Both she and her calf look happy and full.

Looking back on you guy's previous posts I'd swear you 2 wrote the book on club calf production. Maybe you guys should get your dos and don't s in club calf production book published and set up a book stand at every show ring  at every state fair in the country. I'm sure it would be very lucrative.
I have  contacted my publisher and we have already starting printing volume one of a 30 volume set of rules, guidelines, general musings and light suggestions on how to hurt feelings of producers. I hope we can make it affordable for all using public auctions like cw or breedersworld and such. That way the consumer or customer will "in a sense" dictate the price of our product....though the thought of bidding on my own book in the inaugural auction under the guise of different bidder numbers has already come to my partners mind. I just hope we can keep up with volume and will likely have little room between demand and supply which will likely make it more difficult to attain the copies at the cost of say, a very comparable book. With the success of my book surely in the future I can imagine the Chinese will copy it and sell it for a ridiculous price of 17.50 a unit... I mean book, I will not be deterred though. I plan on milking it for all I can for as long as I can! Don't know how I will deal with the bad book reviews though.

Cold hearted truth here, there are two clones and likely a cell line established, terminal gentics by there very nature are....dare I say short term? Eeeeek!  He works really well on some cows and not so much on others, personally I like the calves I have so far. Yes they are quiet and easy to work with, huge bonus compared to the walks alone line. Sad fact is this bull was "found" by RCC, he made him appealing, up till then he was another colored bull out of monopoly and just another clubby cow. How many other " great" ones have been used cleanup in a small herd and the calves were marketed as the flavor of the month because they got tired of people saying "that calf is out of who?".

I have always said you would be suprised how many great ones are hiding on joe blows back forty covering 20 cows a year. They dont all get clipped, pictured or even looked at.

I agree with DL ....ACE is never to be used on cattle. Alright, that said .75 cc up to 1.25cc depending on size of calf in the rectum 15 min before going into the show ring will do wonders.

I always tell my customers between days 4 and 45 is a no go. This is where forward planning pays and in reality i like to see them where they are going to be in 48 hours.

Playing devils advocate I have to ask why is it important? Do show steers really represent any aspect of the cattle industry that is relevent to the consumer standpoint? Unless you visit this website and a handfull of blogs I would say likely not. If breed associations were really serious about having their ACTUAL breed re resented they would have to be purebred to show in the steer show. Sadly this summer will likely see every breed champion sired by a crossbred bull out of a "purebred" cow. Papers can be bought just as easily as Hillary's influence though a might bit cheaper I would say.

In short, stop keeping replacements out of clubby bulls. Longer answer use bulls that are PROVEN to make good functional females. This method may.....dare I say.....involve not using the new popular and quite unproven bull.

Genex has the xc20 listed at $535. Much cheaper than sementanks.com. They also have breeding supplies.

Maybe I have the unpopular opinion here but blame it on genetics, the owners, bull promoters I honestly could care less. Ring or no ring its the call of the showman. Some calves are quite good but born with an attitude that is quite bad. We are arguing about an industry that puts glue and paint on a calf to change the apperance, why argue about what we do to control a calf safely. Look at last years lautner farms catalog, page 18, im guessing Bonhams tied that calf up a time or two and he still has a ring.........sure you can blame it on the heatwave calves being tough to handle from time to time, but people knew that going into it. So it MUST be the breeders fault.?.?.? Oh what the heck the awful blame cycle continues.

Honestly I saw it and though to myself, sounds about right. When these tricks get played its like when a politician is caught lying....do you fein suprise? Nope you shrug and read between the lines. Personally I loved italian stallion at denver and am going to use him. I dont sell many show calves and only breed 60 or so that way each year but having buzz on a bull certainly doesnt hurt. If the calves are good they are easy to sell, if they are are good and out of a popular bull its even easier.
