The Big Show / Re: Udell Sale Topper
« on: October 20, 2020, 06:34:12 PM »
Thanks Steve. I found the sale catalog. I was kinda hoping it could have been one of the Ellie 2201 daughters. I ran a full sib bull here for a few years. Came home on August 19th 2019 to find him laying dead had gotten laid down with his back downhill and subsequently suffocated. Very tough loss to take. He was probably the most complete bull that I have ever ran in my 50 plus years of owning cattle! :( :'(
  I know lot numbers 13 to 18 were out of Ellie 2201.

The Big Show / Re: Best bull stud to visit
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:33:31 AM »
Both of those collection centers are impressive and top notch. I usually go through them each a few times a year. Traditionally after Denver up until turn out time in the spring are the best times to see the most bulls. Vogler's at Ashland, NE. is good and I have heard that the Mitchell, SD. stud is impressive. There are great studs located all over the US that would be fun to visit depending on where you are located. Great people work at the studs in general!!

I would have also induced her but I will say that her birth was more than likely when she would have calved without the induction. Most induced cattle will calve 48 to 72 hours after being induced.

The Big Show / Re: In your opinion, who is the best show calf producer?
« on: September 15, 2020, 01:08:47 PM »
Remember there is a huge difference between a producer and a trader depending on what you want to do and what your budget is if you want/need someone to sort through the calves that are out there being raised by many producers go to a trader / dealer. If you have an eye or know someone that you trust and want to try to save a little coin, find some local producers to guide you.
  Sydney if you would include your local in your profile users could point you to good producers in your home area and depending on where you are from, different areas like somewhat different types of calves especially haired verses slick calves.

The Big Show / Re: Umbarger Feed Help!!!!!

Develop a relationship with your Umbarger feed dealer/salesman. That would be the best. Someone that can put his/her eyes on your projects.

The Big Show / Re: Pongs too big but middle not filled out

I don't really have any advice for you feed wise but I think your friend was meaning the fat pones that appear around the tail head when a beef is possibly getting too fat. It is a good indication of when one is finished. Once a young beef puts on that kind of cover it is tricky to get it off without sacrificing body condition. Most show heifers get plenty of condition on them during their show career but will get the condition sucked back off of them after calving. Hopefully she hasn't put an excessive amount of fat down into to her developing mammary gland area.

The Big Show / Re: Is fitter 52 ok to feed to bred heifer?

This is JMO but I wouldn't hesitate to feed it just because of high protein content. You could counter that by feeding some feedstuff with lower protein content and higher fiber if it bothers you.

Theoretically yes but at the same time it is also easier to put things into a pellet that have no value to them what so ever. Not digestible. there's nothing wrong with pelleted feeds but you need to know what is in them just like you would a textured feed. Bovine are in great nutrient using machine naturally.

You can make almost anything into a pellet therefore making it very easy to use subpart ingredients. JMO

Reassure her that it is not her fault at all. It's just how some calves are and whether she knows it or not she'll most likely learn much more from this calf than other calves she'll have in the future. This one will be the one in 10-20 years that when you are reminiscing with each other, "remember that so & so calf"? :) Her animal husbandry skills will improve greatly because this calf will make her pay attention to how he's acting! ;) Hang in there. Good luck. Some are just tougher than other ones. Just like people!!

One of the things that happens if he's backing away from you is that when a calf does that the next thing that is going on is that the person leading him/her is that it seems like the rope person is kinda running at the calf with the show stick waving back and forth in front of the calf making the situation escalate quickly. IMO if the calf gets to pulling back hard first drop the stick so that it's not making the situation worse and you have both hands to try to stop him easier. I'd suggest using the stick just to scratch his belly and brisket area only until he gets to love the stick b4 you try to work on foot placement. If you can when you are going to stop him and try working with him a little bit of time place him in an area where when/if he backs up he backs himself into a corner or fence o that he can't go too far b4 hitting something that will help the lead person get him back under control. Good luck.
